Minnesota: on the way to 80%!

The latest figures released by the American Cancer Society show Minnesota at a 72% screening rate for colorectal cancer inching ever closer to the elusive 80% screening goal. But according to Minnesota Community Measurement, 83 clinics in Minnesota have already reached this benchmark set by the National Colorectal Cancer Round Table. These clinics will be recognized at the Building Blue Bridges reception on Monday, March 6, 2017, and are listed below.
