Not planning an event but still want to help?

ASGE members can spread the word about screening during NCRCAM by taking just a few minutes to do one or more of the following:  

  • Log in to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn, and look for ASGE’s special hashtag:
    #ColonoscopyIsEasier. Share your favorite images and content on your own feed or that of your practice. Encourage friends to do the same!

  • Place a link to Screen4ColonCancer.org on your website.

  • Share with your colleagues this “Ask the Expert” article about updated screening recommendations and the trend of CRC in people younger than 50: https://www.asge.org/docs/default-source/public_e-blast_pdfs/askexpert-9-2017.pdf?sfvrsn=4

  • Share with primary care colleagues and patients this tool for understanding when and how to be screened. 

Help ASGE, the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and other organizations around the country to reach the goal of getting 80 percent of eligible people screened in every community!
