The UW Carbone Cancer Center, in collaboration with the UW Digestive Health Center and Gilda's Club Madison, will play host to the Strollin' Colon, a free interactive exhibit from Feb. 17-22.


The Strollin' Colon is a pink inflatable that is 12 feet long, 10 feet high and 10 feet wide. As visitors walk through the three-dimensional exhibit, they will see everything on a large scale:

  • Giant polyps
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's disease
