Innovative efforts to reduce colorectal cancer disparities in Alaska Native population

Innovative efforts to reduce colorectal cancer disparities in Alaska Native population

A study in GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy's March issue describes innovative efforts to increase colorectal cancer screening rates in the Alaska Native population, who experience twice the incidence and death rates from colorectal cancer as does the US white population. As a result of ongoing efforts, statewide Alaska Native colorectal cancer screening rates increased from 29 percent in 2 to 41 percent in 25 before the initiation of these efforts and increased to 55 percent in 21.
