Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Workgroup

Meets virtually every first Tuesday of each month from 12 – 1 pm


The Colorectal Cancer Workgroup is currently working on developing a continuing medical education (CME) program targeting primary care physicians and FQHC providers on the clinical impacts of recent state and national policies affecting both the provision and reporting of care for patients at risk for colorectal cancer. In addition, this workgroup will be working with the Department of Health Care Services to increase colorectal cancer screening in California’s Medi-Cal patients by developing a collaborative plan and identifying tools and best practices.
