Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Report includes 80% by 2018

Today Vice President Joe Biden delivered the Cancer Moonshot Task Force Report, which articulates the task force’s strategic plan for transforming cancer research and care. The report includes a strong focus on colorectal cancer screening under Strategic Goal 4, Strengthen Prevention and Diagnosis, and specifically mentions 80% by 2018 as the driving initiative that is shaping state and local efforts to increase colorectal cancer screening (page 24). The task force plans to 1) Expand colorectal cancer screening efforts in the United States and 2) Remove barriers that limit access to colorectal cancer screening.
