In this webcast companion podcast episode Dr. Durado Brooks, Vice President of Cancer Control Interventions for the American Cancer Society, discusses the provider role in The Launching 80% in Every Community Initiative. This episode builds off of CPCA’s 2-part webcast on increasing the colorectal cancer screening rate in California which can be found on the CPCA website at www.cpca.org. These webcasts focus on California’s most current colorectal cancer incidence, mortality, and screening data; the colorectal cancer screening guidelines and testing options; and moving ahead to 80% in Every Community. Led by the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, the Launching 80% in Every Community Initiative is dedicated to substantially reducing colorectal cancer as a major public health problem. If you have not done so, CPCA encourages you to view these sessions online.
