CRC News: April 13, 2022

Dear NCCRT Members:


We have several exciting updates to share with you this week.

Save The Date: 2022 NCCRT Annual Meeting!

We hope you will save the dates to join us for NCCRT’s 26th Annual Meeting on November 16-18, 2022. We are thrilled to share that we’re planning to meet in-person in the DC/Baltimore area. We will share further details on the agenda, hotel, and registration in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, please mark your calendars! Updates will be shared in this newsletter and on the event webpage.

Inaugural Blue Star Conversation a Success!

NCCRT has launched a new series called Blue Star Conversations. Each webinar in this series will include a brief, timely, topical presentation (generally 15-20 minutes) followed by small group discussions among participants, and a sharing of key takeaways with the larger group. These conversations are hosted by one of NCCRT’s six Strategic Priority Teams (SPT). The first session held on March 29, 2022, was hosted by the Family History & Early-Age CRC SPT and featured SPT co-chair Heather Hampel, MS, LGC, City of Hope National Medical Center, presenting the findings from the recent publication A High Percentage of Early-age Onset Colorectal Cancer is Potentially Preventable, published in Gastroenterology. View the recorded presentation and key takeaways from the breakout discussions.

We hope you will join us for the next edition of the exciting new series—the date for which will be shared very soon! And please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have an idea for a topic that could be a good fit for your SPT. Please send your ideas to Kaitlin Sylvester, Director, NCCRT – Programs & Partnerships, at


Many thanks for the great work you do!

The NCCRT Team
