Assets available to help ACS urge the public to ‘Get Screened’

Get Screened and I Got Screened Facebook profile frames now available!

You already know that a big part of our mission work this year is focused on increasing cancer screening rates. Today, we're taking another big step forward in this effort by launching our Get Screened public awareness campaign.

The public screening campaign is one of six components of our effort to make sure people are getting their recommended cancer screening tests. Read this My Society Source story for a look at the big picture. 

ACS's promotional campaign

ACS's campaign will focus on a combination of earned and paid media. Our paid media campaign centers around digital media, specifically Facebook and Instagram. The campaign launches this summer and will run through October. 

New landing page on cancer.org

The campaign has a new landing page on cancer.org. The page addresses how to overcome barriers to cancer screening, including what to do if someone is uninsured or underinsured. More information is available about the ACS guidelines for cancer screening. The landing page is available at cancer.org/get-screened.
