“Thunderclap” social media campaign

The NCCRT is partnering with the National Alliance for Hispanic Health to promote colorectal cancer screening among Hispanics during March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. NCCRT members are invited to participate in a “Thunderclap” social media campaign, which includes a link to NCCRT’s new English and Spanish brochures and an action step for the public to contact the Alliance’s Su Familia helpline for information and screening referral. If interested, please follow the Alliance’s instructions below to register by March 22nd.

What is a Thunderclap?
If 100 supporters sign up by Wednesday, March 23rd at 12:00 noon EST then a message will collectively go out at that time over all of our social media accounts. The messages encourage prevention and give the Alliance’s Su Familia helpline number (1-866-783-2645) for information and screening referral.
