Dear NCCRT Members & 80% Partners:
We are excited to share with you several updates for the third week of March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month!
Registration Open: Colorectal Cancer Screening & COVID-19 Update Webinar
Join us for NCCRT’s next webinar on Thursday, April 15 from 2:00-3:00 PM ET, in which we will reconvene the authors of NCCRT’s action-oriented playbook (released June 2020) for how NCCRT members, 80% pledged partners, and colorectal cancer screening advocates across the nation can work together to reignite our screening efforts appropriately, safely, and equally for all communities. The NCCRT hosted a discussion with the authors on July 23, 2020. This webinar will bring the group back together to discuss what progress we’ve made and what challenges remain for colorectal cancer screening in 2021.
The webcast is free and is open to NCCRT members, 80% Pledge partners, CDC grantees, ACS and ACS CAN staff, and other partners working to increase colorectal cancer screening rates. Pre-registration is required.
