This webinar takes the strategies discussed in the January 20th webinar “Effective Strategies to Reach Patients for Colorectal Cancer Screening During COVID-19” and provides you the opportunity to design a program fit for your Urban or Rural community.  We will present the American Indian Cancer Foundation Toolkit along with tips from experienced clinicians and health educators to implement a successful CRC Screening Awareness Campaign in March of 2021.

During the January 20th, you’ll hear from the Epidemiologists who are National experts in the field of colorectal cancer; and on January 28th you’ll have the opportunity to talk to some of your peers, review the evidence-based practices and identify your Local Community Experts who can help implement the best strategies for your American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) patients in 2021.

We will have panelists from both Urban and Rural health centers who are experienced throughout Indian Country discuss their successful strategies for patient education, outreach, and screening; and tips to modify your pre-COVID strategies to operating during a pandemic.  We will also provide you quick and easy access to patient education materials that you request and receive by mid-February for use in your community for your CRC Awareness program, and share ideas for additional resources that may be underused.
