80% by 2018 Pledge!
In conjunction with the American Cancer Society, Inc. cancer.org
We now have more than 700 partner organizations dedicated to this shared goal. Since our launch of the 80% by 2018 during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March of 2014, every day we are getting closer to 2018, and I want to make sure we continue doing all we can to meet our goal of 80%.
We have a plethora of materials available for use in your everyday communications efforts to help shine the light on colorectal cancer all year long, many of which are highlighted in the 80% by 2018 Intro packet, attached. You can find these materials via the following links: nccrt.org/80by2018 and nccrt.org/tools
In addition, you may find the talking points and fact sheet particularly helpful as you advance the knowledge about the importance of screening:
