Colorectal Cancer Screening in Rural and Poor-Resourced Communities
Reports on a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach testing the usefulness of Empowering Communities for Life (EC4L), a culturally appropriate and community relevant intervention, developed to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening in two rural and underserved counties within the Mississippi Delta region of Arkansas. Describes the CBPR model, and the preliminary training and collaboration with community partners, and discusses participant barriers and facilitators to effective screening.
