California Colon Cancer Control Program
Established in 2009, the California Department of Public Health's (CDPH) California Colon Cancer Control Program (C4P) focuses on the following key objectives:
- Provide information and messages to increase public awareness of colorectal cancer (CRC), and the importance of early detection through screening.
- Collaborate with existing health organizations and community partners to improve access to screenings and treatment services.
- Collect data from partnering clinics and providers to measure screening success.
- Promote provider education/awareness for U.S. Preventive Services Task Force CRC screening guidelines and the use of quality standards for CRC screening
C4P does not provide financial assistance, colonoscopies or any other CRC screenings.
C4P was established in 2009 with a grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
