Looking for ways to learn more about colorectal cancer, for chances to consider how we can make the most impact against this disease, or for opportunities to help others get engaged in this effort? The ACS National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable is holding an event this month that is sure to fit the bill.

The ACS NCCRT will hold its annual National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month webcast on Thursday, March 23, from 2-3 p.m. ET. The event will feature three areas of particular interest to ACS team members: 

  • The latest state of the field updates that inform our work: A look at ACS work to advance colorectal cancer screening through the ACS NCCRT and the Patient Support Pillar’s grant programs. 
  • A deep dive into the recently released Colorectal Cancer Facts & Figures with speaker Rebecca Siegel, ACS senior scientific director, surveillance research.
  • Showcase of the work of NCCRT’s five 2023 80% in Every Community National Achievement Awardees, many of which worked closely with regional ACS team members to accomplish their success.

Other speakers at the event will include NCCRT co-chairs Steven Itzkowitz, MD, and Robert Smith, PhD; Lisa Richardson, MD, MPH, director, division of cancer prevention and control, Centers for Disease Control; and others.
