It is estimated that one in three adults over the age of 50 – about 23 million people – is not tested as recommended. Join the national effort to get 80% of adults ages 50 and older regularly tested for colon cancer by 2018. 80% by 2018 is a National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable initiative in which more than 140 organizations have committed to eliminating colorectal cancer as a major public health problem.
