DaCCoTA team looking for participants in a conversation around barriers to colorectal cancer screening

The Dakota Community Collaborative on Translational Activity (DaCCoTA) team at the University of North Dakota is studying barriers to, and support for, colorectal cancer prevention and treatment in North Dakota. What obstacles prevent you from getting screened? What questions do you have about colonoscopy or the other screening methods available?

If you live in one of the listed counties below, and are aged 50 or older, please join us for a community conversation around local barriers to specific health care services.

Participants are given a $50 gift card for their time!
