NCCRT Director Update – August 2022

NCCRT Director Update – August 2022

August 16, 2022 – Authors: Emily Bell, MPH and Kaitlin Sylvester, MPA

Each summer, the NCCRT steering committee meets at an annual retreat to reflect on the landscape of colorectal cancer screening, to review our current and recent work, and to chart our course for the coming year. We were thrilled to meet in-person with the group–for the first time since 2019!–in Washington, DC last week.

We’re pleased to share with you the “State of the NCCRT” presentation that we prepared for the steering committee to summarize where we stand with our work toward 80% in Every Community—the collective efforts of the NCCRT membership, our Strategic Priority Teams, and numerous advisory groups.

We hope you will take a look at the exciting work completed or teed up for the remainder of 2022 and join us in the feeling of immense pride and gratitude for all that we are able to accomplish when we work together to achieve bold goals.

We are fortunate to work alongside you as we strive to reach 80% in Every Community.

Thank you for all that you do!
