Despite pandemic, Georgia’s Colorectal Cancer Control Program making significant strides

Thanks to funding awarded by the Centers for Disease Control for five-years that began July 2020, Georgia CORE and Augusta University are partners in the Georgia Colorectal Cancer Control Program, which is increasing CRC screenings in southeast and southwest Georgia. The program is part of the CDC's national SreenOutCancer initiative. For Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, here's an update of the program's progress. Read on.
Donate to cancer research in Georgia while doing your taxes!
Did you know that the State of Georgia offers an option to donate to cancer research on the state income tax form? The program, named the Georgia Cancer Research Fund, is listed as item #32 on the Income Tax Form 500, and filers can donate as little as $1.

NCI seeking patients for colon and rectal cancer study
The National Cancer Institute is seeking colon and rectal cancer patients for an upcoming research study to learn about their experience with cancer regarding unmet needs and resources. More specifically, we are looking to speak with:
  • Colon or rectal cancer survivors
  • Age 18-49 at cancer diagnosis
  • Completed treatment within the last 12 months
The participation is completely voluntary and would involve completing a 20-minute online survey and a 45-minute interview over the phone. Participants will receive a 100 dollar e-gift card for their time. To see if you qualify, please call Carolyn Cole, Research Associate at (484) 343-2891.
