Return to Colorectal Cancer Screening
Did you know that nearly 19,000 Americans may have their colorectal cancer diagnosis delayed due to screening tests postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic?
Your listeners and their doctors need to reconnect. Colorectal cancer is the nation’s second-leading cause of cancer death, but nearly always treatable if caught early, and can even be prevented through timely screening.
The government now requires insurance companies to cover not only “Colonoscopy” – but also “Virtual” Colonoscopy and other less-invasive exams. The more people are aware of these less-invasive tests, the more people choose to be screened, and the more lives can be saved.
The American College of Radiology®, a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 medical association, and member of the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, has produced a series of 30-second radio public service announcements featuring a prominent African American physician expert.
Please consider airing these important PSAs. We appreciate any programming time you can spare.
We can also supply a physician expert for news interviews.
