2017 NCCRT Annual Meeting
Date: December 6 – 8, 2017
Location: DoubleTree Hilton, Bethesda, MD
Each year the NCCRT membership, a collaboration of over 100 medical, advocacy, government, and corporate organizations, convenes to work together on our shared goal to increase colorectal cancer screening awareness and utilization, thereby reducing deaths from this highly preventable and curable disease.
This year our focus will be on ramping up our efforts to reach 80% of adults ages 50 or older screened regularly for colorectal cancer. We’ve made tremendous progress, but we must keep our momentum strong through 2018. We hope you’ll join us as we chart the course into 2018 and beyond.
The 2017 NCCRT Annual Meeting will feature presentations by nationally known experts, thought leaders, and decision makers on colorectal cancer screening policy and delivery, with ample opportunity to network and learn from each other.
Members will receive emailed invitations to register in early fall. Not currently a member? Learn more about NCCRT membership.
During this interactive and informal session, representatives from state and local colorectal cancer screening programs are invited to come and share their struggles, lessons learned and keys to success in their efforts to deliver screening at the community level.
New to either the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) or the NCCRT annual meeting? Or maybe you’ve been coming for years and still don’t know what anyone does beyond your own task group? Then, this session is for you!
