The Cancer Action Coalition of Virginia invites you to join the Virginia Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and its efforts to eliminate colorectal cancer as a major public health issue. Come learn and engage with us and other local stake holders at our

Central Southern Virginia Colorectal Cancer Roundtable

Friday, October 6, 2017!

Free | Open to the Public | Lunch Included

This event will include a discussion on the nationwide initiative to reach an 80% colorectal cancer screening rate by 2018. Together, we’ll explore some of the factors and barriers that impact screening.

We’ll also focus on best practices for screening, development of community partnerships, available tools and resources, and a plan of action to increase screening in our communities.

Everyone is invited as it will take the support and collaboration of many—including hospitals and health systems, community groups, primary care practitioners, employers, insurers, gastroenterologists, nurses, navigators AND MORE—to reduce the burden of colorectal cancer in Virginia.
