Intent to Support the Vision
About Colorectal Cancer:
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Screening can lead
to early detection and removal of polyps before they develop into cancer. If detected early, colorectal
cancer can be treated more easily. Most cases of colorectal cancer may be prevented through screening
and removal of polyps. Some racial and ethnic minority groups have disproportionately higher colorectal
cancer incidence and mortality rates.
About Screen to Save:
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) has
launched the Screen to Save (S2S): NCI Colorectal Cancer Outreach and Screening Initiative as a
nationwide effort to increase colorectal cancer education, awareness, and screening rates with a focus on
racially/ethnically diverse communities and in rural areas. We believe that together, we can reduce
colorectal cancer incidence and death and ultimately eliminate its associated disparities. We seek to
identify organizations, across disciplines and sectors, that share our vision that everyone should be
screened to save lives, and that support increasing outreach, awareness, and linkages to care in
racially/ethnically diverse communities and rural areas.
