The 2015-2016 budget recently passed by the South Carolina General Assembly contains a specific proviso in the amount of $200,000, matching equivalent funding from private sources, to support the CCCR’s Screening Program, which fosters colonoscopy screening statewide. Legislators supported the proviso for the tired consecutived year, recognizing the potential for screening as an effective strategy to reduce colorectal cancer incidence, deaths and overall health care costs.  The money will leverage funds from The Duke Endowment, the South Carolina BlueCross BlueShield Foundation, the National Institues of Health, and many private donors in increasing screening rates for colorectal cancer among uninsured and medically underserved individuals throughout South Carolina.
