Inflatable Colon Tunnel Promotes Community Outreach & Education
Take one look at the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and you'll notice something quickly… they have a passion for education. There's good reason for that. Many forms of cancer can be treated more diligently or completely prevented with proper education and early screenings. Such is the case with colon cancer.
With community outreach being a primary activity at the Siteman Cancer Center, it only made sense that they would want a marketing tool which was proven to attract crowds. A custom inflatable colon tunnel was the perfect solution.
Unusual to say the least (even curious), the inflatable colon tunnel does its job of raising eyebrows well. While onlookers make their way through the colon, they are educated on the phases of the disease as well as preventative measures that can (and should) be taken.
And you know what else? In some areas, it costs half as much to produce your own custom inflatable colon tunnel as it would be to rent one. When we asked Barnes-Jewish's Community Health Coordinator, Liz Kalicak, why she chose Landmark Creations, the bottom line was cost: "I did some research online and found that it cost half as much to have a colon made. So, rather than renting one, we decided to have Landmark Creations make one for us. I knew it would be a quality product after speaking with someone who had worked with Landmark before. It has been absolutely great!"
