The Population Health Colorectal Cancer Screening Program is a collaborative effort between Fred Hutch and UW Medicine. Our goals are to eradicate colorectal cancer by improving screening, reducing racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities, and improving follow-up for those with abnormal non-invasive screening tests. We do this through quality improvement, research, community engagement, and informing local and national health policy.
Our research focuses on the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer through increased screening, especially among medically underserved populations. Our current projects include evaluations of novel interventions to increase adherence to colorectal cancer screening and follow-up of abnormal results.
