We, at the Center for Health Research, and with our partners, are trying to understand how to most effectively raise colorectal cancer screening rates across the country, in a variety of settings, through a diverse set of research projects. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths. Early detection saves lives, yet too few adults are screened regularly.
Screening rates are particularly low for certain groups of people. Working with FQHCs allows us to deliver our program to those who need it the most.
