80% by 2018 Impact on Lives Saved by State

Researchers estimate that achieving 80% by 2018 would prevent 277,000 new cases and 203,000 deaths from colon cancer by 2030. A paper published last year calculated the number needing to be screened to achieve 80% by 2018 by state. Researchers have now communicated the estimated number of new colon cancer cases and deaths that would be avoided in each state by 2030.
