Michigan joins colorectal cancer screening effort

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Department of Community Health is joining a national effort to increase colorectal cancer screening rates to 80-percent by 2018. In 2010 there were nearly 4,500 cases of colorectal cancer in the state and 1,765 people died of the disease.

"We have made great strides in the fight against this disease," says MDCH head James Haveman, "and joining the national effort to increase our screening rates can greatly impact the prevention and lifesaving interventions that can reduce our colorectal cancer rates."
