Innovative Ways To Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening Among The Underserved – February 20, 2018

This webinar was a repeat of one of our most highly rated workshops from the NCCRT meeting last month. The purpose of the webinar was to move beyond describing the challenges of reaching the underserved to showcasing innovative solutions, including using systems change to increase colorectal cancer screening in a multi-ethnic community; providing an example of how local health departments can team up with academics on community engagement; and partnering with emergency departments to reach rural residents who don’t have a primary care provider.
