On March 28, 2014, Cigna Corp. (Cigna) announced that via its award-winning Colorectal Cancer Screening Program, the Company intends to reach two million people in 2014 that are due for screening through a combination of targeted online messages and direct mail.

Scott Josephs, M.D., Cigna National Medical Officer, stated, "Colorectal cancer is treatable and preventable, especially if detected early, which is why educating customers about screening is so important. We saw a significant increase in the rate of screenings as a result of last year's campaign, and we want that trend to continue in 2014 and beyond."
