Dear NCCRT Members,
We have a couple updates to share with you today!
Nominations for the 2023 80% in Every Community National Achievement Awards Are Open!
The NCCRT is pleased to announce that nominations are open for the 2023 80% in Every Community National Achievement Awards, a competitive recognition program that seeks to highlight colorectal cancer screening success stories by recognizing individuals and organizations who are dedicating their time, talent and expertise to advancing the shared goal to reach colorectal cancer screening rates of 80% and higher in communities across the nation. Of course, we welcome nominations of partners who have reached 80%, but we are also looking to recognize systems who are seeing noted improvements in baseline screening rates or recognize individual champions who have made a difference through leadership or other means.
Visit the awards webpage to learn about contest rules, prizes and recognition, and to submit your nomination. The top nominee will receive a $3,000 donation to support their efforts (see the website for details and exceptions). The nominations deadline is November 22, 2022.

This post-meeting summary captures the forward-looking discussions and strategic planning while outlining the case examples, NCCRT tools and resources available to support CRC screening in primary care settings.
The meeting summary includes an overview of the current state of CRC screening in the primary care setting, successes in advancing CRC screening in primary care despite ongoing challenges, an overview of NCCRT tools and research available to support primary care clinicians, strategic planning for overcoming prioritized barriers, and the successful partnership between NCCRT and the American Association of Medical Assistance (AAMA).
