Come hear Karen Kim, MD, MS, who is one of the nation’s experts in delivering culturally competent public health messages to Asian Americans. Participants will explore in depth the perceptions, barriers and facilitators to colorectal cancer screening in this diverse and dynamic population. While the workshop will focus on messaging around colorectal cancer screening, much of the advice will also help inform other public health campaigns that seek to reach Asian communities.
Speaker: Karen E. Kim, MD, MS, The University of Chicago

How to Pay for Screening Navigation: A New Toolkit from the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and the Colorado School of Public Health
Many in public health are firm believers in the power of screening navigation, but the trick is how you pay for it. Andi Dwyer will introduce you to the new toolkit How to Pay for Screening Navigation from the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and the University of Colorado School of Public Health. Come see what’s in the kit, how it works and the real-world examples that inform its guiding principles.
