Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. after prostate and lung cancer in men and breast and lung cancer in women. Screening can reduce the incidence and mortality of colorectal cancer by detecting early stage CRC when patients are still asymptomatic. In this webinar, Dr. Darrell M. Gray, II, MD, MPH, will describe the epidemiology of CRC and CRC disparities, teach primary care clinicians how to utilize evidence-based strategies for prevention and screening, and share practical steps to increase uptake of CRC screening among patients and engagement in CRC awareness activities within their practice and community.


This lecture will be conducted as a one-hour live webinar. Registration is free. Participants will submit a survey at the end of the session to claim CME credit.
