Our Mission

Raising Colorectal Cancer Screening Rates in Louisiana

Colorectal cancer is a largely preventable cancer, which can be detected by screening. However, nationwide, it is estimated that one in three adults over the age of 50, or about 23 million people, is not getting screened as recommended. That lack of screening means that people are dying unnecessarily, especially in Louisiana, with the state having the second highest colorectal cancer death rate in the country. 

That is why the Louisiana Colorectal Cancer Roundtable (LCCRT) is asking everyone to join in the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable’s “80% By 2018” initiative, where people are working toward the shared goal of getting 80% of all adults age 50 and over being regularly screened by 2018. We can eliminate colorectal cancer as a major public health problem, but we need your help.

Sign the pledge. Take action.
