Chicago physician invites news crew to 1st colonoscopy

Ngozi Ezike, MD, CEO of Sinai Chicago and former director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, invited NBC Chicago to film her first screening colonoscopy, the news outlet reported March 4.

Dr. Ezike told NBC Chicago that filming her experience is part of her mission to help Sinai Chicago's patient population, which is 50% Black.

"If we want to really narrow these disparities that we keep talking about between the communities that Sinai serves and other communities in Chicago, it really starts with some of these important preventive and screening procedures," Dr. Ezike told NBC Chicago.
