Connect with Screen to Save
The Screen to Save Initiative aims to increase life-saving colorectal cancer screening rates in communities that need it most. Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the United States and second leading cause of cancer death. People age 50 and older from racially and ethnically diverse communities have lower screening rates than the general population.
Screen to Save provides tailored education and outreach that increases access to resources for those who are disproportionately affected by colorectal cancer. As a part of Screen to Save, NCI-supported community health educators are working with a diverse partner network to deliver NCI-approved colorectal cancer screening information nationally and locally.
Join NCI community health educators and partners in helping to increase colorectal cancer screenings among men and women age 50–75 from racially and ethnically diverse communities and in rural areas.
