The Cancer Action Coalition of Virginia invites you to join the Virginia Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and its efforts to eliminate colorectal cancer as a major public health issue. Come learn and engage with us and other local stakeholders at one or more of our events this March 2016!
These events will include a discussion on the nationwide initiative to reach an 80% colorectal cancer screening rate by 2018. Together, we’ll explore some of the factors and barriers that impact screening. We’ll also focus on best practices for screening, development of community partnerships, available tools and resources, and a plan of action to increase screening in our communities.
There is NO COST to attend. Everyone is invited as it will take the support and collaboration of many – including hospitals and health systems, community groups, primary care practitioners, employers, insurers, gastroenterologists, nurses, navigators AND MORE – to reduce the burden of colorectal cancer in Virginia.
