The Colon Cancer Prevention Project's efforts

The Colon Cancer Prevention Project worked with partners across the state in 2008 to get the Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Program installed.

In 2011-2012, the Project led the advocacy work that resulted in $1 million from the state budget being allotted to the program. It was the first time funding had ever been approved for the Program.

The Project is a partner in the screening program that has been funded in Louisville, Ky. - the 4th worst city in the nation for colon cancer mortality, among cities with a population greater than 500,000.

The Project will also work with funded programs across the state to help make the Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Program a success, and will continue to advocate for funding for the program.
