CRC News: December 19, 2019

Hello NCCRT Members and 80% Partners, As 2019 draws to a close, we reflect on the incredible community of colorectal cancer screening champions that is working together to achieve 80% in Every Community. We are continually inspired by your passion, your persistence, your innovation, and the kindness that you put into your work to prevent more cancers and save more lives. It’s a privilege to work with you. We are writing to share a couple updates before many of you take a break for the holidays. This will be our last news update for 2019, but we are already excited to continue our work with you in 2020. In the meantime, thank you for all the good work that you do and best wishes for a very happy holiday season!

Reminder: Request for Feedback: 80% in Every Community Strategic Plan

In January 2020, the NCCRT will release the 80% in Every Community Strategic Plan, which serves as a roadmap for helping communities and organizations in reaching our shared goal of achieving 80% colorectal cancer screening rates nationwide. From December 12, 2019 to January 8, 2020, the NCCRT will be taking comments on the current iteration of the plan, and we invite our membership as well as other interested partners in taking time to provide feedback. Comments will be reviewed by an advisory committee and considered for any content changes prior to final publication of the strategic plan. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
