CDC Telebriefing: New Vital Signs Report
How can more people get tested for colorectal cancer?
WhatColorectal cancer screening (CRC) saves lives, but only if people get tested. A new Vital Signs report shows about 23 million adults have never been tested, as recommended. Research shows that people who are offered the test they prefer are more likely to actually get the test done. CDC will discuss why increasing the number of all recommended CRC tests is important.
