Poster maps 80% by 2018 progress by state

Poster maps 80% by 2018 progress by state

NCCRT Evaluation and Measurement Task Group co-chair Ann G. Zauber, PhD, researcher at Memorial Sloan Kettering, recently presented a poster describing 80% by 2018 progress to date at the 2016 Digestive Disease Week Conference in San Diego in May, an annual meeting that draws 15,000 gastroenterology professionals.

The poster illustrates the progress of the 80% by 2018 initiative by comparing the number needed to screen to reach 80% by 2018 in each state with the number of pledges received in each state. Download the poster here.
