About

Help Sea Mar improve its Colorectal Cancer Screening Rates! Colon cancer is the 2 nd leading cause of cancer death in the U.S even though it is HIGHLY preventable and easy to test. If everyone over 50 were screened regularly, 60% of colon cancer deaths would be prevented.

Volunteer your time at the largest community health center in the state. We’re focused on addressing barriers that our underserved populations often face. Sea Mar has designed a mailing program to break down barriers to colon cancer screening.

Volunteers are needed to help implement the project and put materials together.
