This webinar will address what we know and don’t know about colorectal cancer screening for those with a familiar risk of colorectal cancer. During the webinar, study authors Dr. Jan Lowery and Dr. Dennis Ahnen will review the NCCRT-commissioned article that was published earlier this year on colorectal cancer and family history in the journal Cancer: Understanding the contribution of family history to colorectal cancer risk and its clinical implications: A state-of-the-science review. The NCCRT’s Family History Task Group conducted this review to better understand the current state of knowledge regarding family history and colorectal cancer.


  • Dennis Ahnen, MD, University of Colorado Cancer Center
  • Jan Lowery, PhD, MPH, Catholic Health Initiatives

Registration is required.

A replay of the webinar will be made available a few days after the webinar on the NCCRT webinar archive webpage.
