Detection of Colorectal Cancer: A Pilot project in a Community Health Center

Dr. Rebecca Laudicina continues her work with the Lincoln Community Health Center in Durham, NC to develop a low-cost screening program for colorectal cancer (CRC) using laboratory tests. The goal of the project is to incorporate CRC screening into routine adult primary care. Dr. Laudicina developed a 3-tiered approach to screening which conserves precious resources, yet brings the practice into compliance with current CRC screening guidelines.
