NCCRT Strategic Priority Teams

The NCCRT advances its mission, the 80% in Every Community campaign, and the 80% in Every Community Strategic Plan through the efforts of our Strategic Priority Teams (formerly known as Task Groups). Through your engagement in the Strategic Priority Teams, NCCRT members are able to share best practices about colorectal cancer screening, identify needs or opportunities required to support the colorectal cancer fighting community, and to design and develop activities/resources that directly address gaps in colorectal cancer screening delivery, programs, research, or advocacy.

This year, the Strategic Priority Teams will meet in the weeks leading up to the 80% in Every Community Conference and NCCRT Annual Meeting. A report back session will be hosted on Tuesday, November 17 — Day 2 of our meeting.

  • Community Health Centers
  • Family History and Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer
  • Policy Action
  • Public Awareness and Social Media 
  • Professional Education and Practice Implementation: Healthcare Systems

  • Signing up for that session confirms your commitment to that Strategic Priority Team for 2020/2021, but you can change your commitments on an annual basis.
  • If you have multiple member representatives on the NCCRT from your organization, it is recommended that you choose separate sessions to attend, if applicable to your work. Please limit attendance to these sessions to four per organization.
