Screening Coordination Committee Successes

In February and March 2017, Committee members presented ‘Fit’ Your Business for Cancer Screening: Help Make Colorado a Leader in Cancer Prevention to the Colorado Business Group on Health and the Cancer Caucus of the Colorado General Assembly. In total, more than 50 employers, insurers, legislators and other stakeholders attended. The presentation focused on cancer trends in Colorado, the importance of cancer screening and the business case for employers to care about cancer by encouraging businesses to build cancer-friendly workplaces to increase employee wellness and productivity.
