You Can Help Get More People Screened for Cancer

Screen Out Cancer: Advancing Cancer Prevention Nationwide

ScreenOutCancer is a CDC initiative designed to improve the quality of cancer screening across the United States and increase the number of people who get screened.

It offers communication tools and marketing resources. Cancer screening programs can use these resources to encourage health systems and primary care clinics to use interventions that have been shown to work. They can also help health systems make these interventions part of their daily work process.

Why partner with CDC programs?

By working with CDC-funded programs and their partners, your health system will benefit from their 30 years of experience. Their reach is national, but their focus is local. These programs can help you:

  • Use data to select interventions and find out if they are working.
  • Set up interventions.
  • Develop policies and procedures.
  • Improve screening services.
  • Educate patients about recommended cancer screenings.
