80% x 2018 – How will these numbers save lives?

What is 80% x 2018 and who is the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable?bluestar

80% x 2018 is a movement in which dozens of organizations have committed to eliminating colorectal cancer as a major public health problem and are working toward the shared goal of reaching 80% screened for colorectal cancer by 2018. The National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (NCCRT) is a collaborative partnership with more than 60 member organizations across the nation, committed to taking action in the screening, prevention, and early detection of colorectal cancer.

As one of the Founding members of NCCRT, the American Cancer Society invites you to find out more about how the 80%x2018 initiative will save lives and join us by taking the pledge at http://nccrt.org/tools/80-percent-by-2018/
