Special NCCRT webinar on the latest colorectal cancer findings moved from May 11 to May 18; participants must re-register

​PLEASE NOTE: The date of this webinar has been moved from May 11 to May 18, 1 - 2 p.m. ET, to accommodate a new platform. Participants will need to re-register

Robert Smith, PhD, senior vice president of cancer screening at ACS, and Rebecca Siegel, MPH, scientific director of surveillance research at ACS, will provide a closer look at the findings from Colorectal Cancer Statistics 2020 during a National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) webinar on Monday, May 18, at 1 - 2 p.m. ET. 

The webinar will focus on findings released on March 5, 2020, that indicate the burden of colorectal cancer is swiftly shifting to younger individuals as incidence increases in young adults and declines in older age groups. 

Also, the median age of diagnosis has dropped from age 72 in 2001-2002 to age 66 during 2015-2016, and half of all new diagnoses are in people 66 or younger. The publication is accompanied by a consumer version, Colorectal Cancer Facts & Figures and a press release is also available.

This webinar is open to NCCRT members, 80% Pledge partners, CDC grantees, ACS staff and volunteers, and other partners working to increase colorectal cancer screening rates. Registration is required and, as noted above, you will need to re-register if you registered for the previously scheduled date (May 11).
