The Board of Commissioners of the City of Pharr met for a regular meeting on Monday, March 20, 2023, and considered an agenda that included the following highlights:

City Proclaims March 2023 as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D., and the Pharr City Commission approved a proclamation declaring March 2023 as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States among men and women combined. It is one of the few cancers that can be prevented with timely screening, but one in three eligible Americans is not up-to-date on screening. Mayor Hernandez and the Pharr City Commission stressed the importance of early detection and screening of colorectal cancer. Representatives from Doctors Hospital at Renaissance accepted the proclamation during the city meeting and reminded citizens about the importance of early detection through annual screenings.
