Organizations are rallying around our shared goal of reaching 80% screened for colorectal cancer. The success of this goal is dependent on a strong foundation built with support from each of you.
We are asking all NCCRT member organizations and others to consider pledging your organization’s commitment to the 80% effort by reviewing the pledge and completing the online pledge form, if you haven’t already. The pledge represents a commitment to work toward increasing the number of people screened for colorectal cancer and substantially reducing colorectal cancer as a major public health problem. Please take these steps to indicate that your organization is embracing this shared goal. By working together, demanding more of ourselves, and collectively pushing harder, we will make greater progress, prevent more cancers, and save more lives.
Note: The 80% by 2018 pledge has recently been changed to the 80% Pledge to reflect our intention to continue our efforts to increase colorectal cancer screening to 80% or higher across the nation after the 80% by 2018 initiative concludes on December 31st, 2018. Review the Beyond 2018 FAQs to learn more about how the NCCRT is charting the course for our work to increase colorectal screening beyond 2018.
