Colorectal Cancer Screening: How to Achieve 80% in Every Community
This webinar will be exploring colorectal cancer screening from several different angles. An esteemed group of medical professionals will be updating our participants about national efforts around colorectal cancer from the perspective of the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable. The webinar will also provide local trends and statistics from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and explore strategies on how we can achieve higher screening rates in NYC to help create a healthier community. The overarching theme of the webinar is the multifaceted approach to CRC awareness, statistics, and implementation strategies in efforts to achieve 80% screening rates and beyond in every community. Our audience is targeted towards those health and medical professionals who are influential among their peers and those with the opportunity to positively affect the decline of this preventable form of cancer.
