On March 16, the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) hosted a webcast featuring Richard Wender, MD, and Robert Smith, PhD, NCCRT co-chairs; Lisa Richardson, MD, MPH, director of CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control; Rebecca Siegel, MPH, our senior scientific director, Surveillance Research; Folasade May, MD, PhD, MPhil, UCLA Health, our 2021 80% in Every Community National Achievement Awards grand prize honoree; and other special guests.
If you missed the annual event, held every March in recent years to mark Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, a replay is now available.
Host of the show was our own Desiree Berenguer Carton.
Coming up on Thursday, April 15, 2 - 3 p.m. ET, is another NCCRT webinar: Colorectal Cancer Screening & COVID-19 Update: A Look At The Current Landscape One Year Into The Pandemic.
The webcast is free and is open to NCCRT members, 80% Pledge partners, CDC grantees, ACS and ACS CAN staff, and other partners working to increase colorectal cancer screening rates. Pre-registration is required.
This webinar will bring back together the authors of NCCRT’s action-oriented playbook (released June 2020) to discuss what progress has been made and what challenges remain for colorectal cancer screening in 2021.
