CDC Colorectal Cancer Control Program

https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/crccp/

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CDC’s CRCCP) works to increase colorectal cancer screening rates across the United States in men and women aged 50 to 75. Increasing screening rates in states and tribes across the nation will decrease the morbidity and mortality rates due to colon cancer. CDC’s CRCCP will do so through implementing evidence-based interventions and other supporting strategies in partnership with health systems and providing screening and follow-up services for a limited number of eligible people. CDC’s CRRCP focuses on targeted populations in CDC’s partner health systems, which allows for a more feasible program that can make a greater impact.

National Colorectal Cancer Round Table

http://nccrt.org/

The National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) was established in 1997 by the American Cancer Society and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It is a national coalition of public, private, and voluntary organizations and invited individuals dedicated to reducing both the incidence and mortality due to colorectal cancer through the use of coordinated leadership, strategic planning, and advocacy. A central idea of the NCCRT is that more can be accomplished together than alone. The NCCRT’s current strategic plan, “80% by 2018”, aims to screen 80% of adults aged 50 and older for colorectal cancer by 2018.
