MPCA Co-hosting Multi-Agency Collaborative Webinar Series on Colorectal Cancer Screening
Thursday, February 06, 2014
Research shows that colorectal cancer screening reduces mobility and
mortality rates when done consistently and appropriately. In spite of
this, testing rates remain low among minority, poor, and economically
disadvantaged populations, who show high rates of this disease.
assist Health Centers in planning and implementing an effective
screening program, MPCA is partnering with the Indiana Primary Health
Care Association, Illinois Primary Health Care Association, American
Cancer Society, and Michigan Department of Community Health to host a
three-part webinar series focused on colorectal cancer screening and
presented by top experts in the field.
