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.
