Colorectal Cancer Screening In American Indian & Alaska Native Communities – November 28, 2017
This webinar explored the opportunities and barriers related to delivering quality colorectal cancer screening and follow-up care in health care settings serving American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. The webinar provided a review of basic basic data on colorectal cancer incidence, mortality, and screening rates in AI/AN populations, an overview of the American Cancer Society and the NCCRT’s work to address this issue, and presentations from two AI/AN-serving healthcare systems about their innovative approaches to increasing colorectal cancer screening.
Learn more about the American Cancer Society and the NCCRT’s work to address this issue in the post-meeting report from the April 2016 one-day summit to explore the challenges and potential solutions to improving access to quality colorectal cancer screening in this population.
