Tools to promote CRC screening during Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15th to October 15th!  If you are conducting any initiatives related to the month, we encourage you to consider the advice and resources available in the NCCRT Hispanics/Latinos and Colorectal Cancer Companion Guide. The Companion Guide includes:

◾Perceptions about colorectal cancer and barriers to screening among unscreened Hispanics/Latinos

◾Recommendations for reaching unscreened Hispanics/Latinos

◾Spanish language tested messages

In addition, you may find this infographic with key messages, developed by the American Gastroenterological Association, useful to share with providers and public health professionals who are looking to reach this priority audience. Many thanks to Hannah M. Herrington, Senior Patient Communications Manager for sharing this resource with us.
