Colorectal cancer impacts certain demographics more than others

Colorectal cancer rates and mortality vary among racial and ethnic groups, age, and socioeconomic status. For instance, Black Americans have the highest mortality rate and second-highest incidence rate of colorectal cancer in the U.S. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance Chris4Life Research Program awards grants toward research that helps us understand why rates vary among different groups and how to improve early detection and treatment among diverse populations.
