Resources for Increasing Colorectal Cancer Screening

Supporting the 80% by 2018 Initiative

The 80% by 2018 initiative was begun by the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) — a partnership of the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other public and private organizations. The goal of reaching an 80% screening rate nationwide will continue beyond 2018 and resources will be updated as needed.

For all NCCRT's and select partner material, visit their Resource Center .

Below are resources, organized by topic and created by various partners including the NYS Department of Health, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, American Cancer Society, National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others as listed.
