REPLAY: Special NCCRT webinar on the latest colorectal cancer stats and trends

‚ÄčIn this May 18 webinar, Robert Smith, PhD, senior vice president of cancer screening at ACS, and Rebecca Siegel, MPH, scientific director of surveillance research at ACS, provide a closer look at the findings from Colorectal Cancer Statistics 2020.

Watch the replay here.

The webinar focuses 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.
