The Colorectal Cancer Prevention Network (CCPN) is dedicated to the prevention, treatment and eradication of colorectal cancer mortality through education, awareness, and provisions of screening services.
The Colorectal Cancer Prevention Network (CCPN) at the University of South Carolina (UofSC) is a successful functioning individual entity under the College of Arts & Sciences. We are steadfast with our mission as we work to eradicate the incidence of colorectal cancer through the state of South Carolina. As part of these ongoing efforts, the screening program continues to expand its reach to maximize efforts in increasing screening delivery to medically underserved individuals. Innovative initiatives have been launched by the CCPN that fostered colorectal cancer awareness, education and screening by implementing strategies and solutions aimed to reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer and to also address the rise in young adult (<45yrs/age) cases of colorectal cancer. The CCPN team undertook the development and dissemination of a focused clinical education, which was endorsed by the South Carolina Gastroenterology Association and the South Carolina Gastroenterology Association Foundation. The clinical education is designed for the primary care providers to promote completion of CRC risk assessment and increase patient compliance during the patient visit beginning at age 18.
