Webinar: Reigniting Colorectal Cancer Screening as Communities Face and Respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Date: Thursday, July 23, 2020

Time: 2:00 to 3:00 PM ET

We hope you will be able to join us on July 23 in a discussion about the NCCRT’s new report on colorectal cancer screening during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report, which released on June 30, provides an action-oriented playbook 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. During this webinar, we will hear from the report’s lead authors, an expert panel that will share the report’s four aligning statements as well as a summary of findings. Time will be allocated for an ample Q&A after presentations.  

Pre-registration is required.
