Request for Proposals: Colorectal Cancer Screenings in Maine
Maine Cancer Foundation is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals on Colorectal Cancer Screenings in Maine.
Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in Maine. Screening for colorectal cancer can help prevent the disease by detecting precancerous cells or growths (polyps) in the colon and rectum so they can be removed. It also can detect colorectal cancer at an early stage, when treatment is most successful in lowering the risk of dying from colon cancer.
Maine Cancer Foundation is now accepting applications for evidence-based interventions to increase the number of and improve the quality of colorectal cancer screening rates in our state.
Proposals should use evidence-based practices according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
