Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research


Alliance for Colorectal Cancer.

Project Overview

Under the leadership of Drs. Valerio and Fernandez, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health, Center for Health Promotion & Prevention Research (CHPPR) will collaborate with MD Anderson Cancer Center to evaluate a program to increase CRCS among CPRIT priority populations in central, south, and southeast Texas. We will assist MD Anderson in the development of a CRC screening coalition made up of CRCS stakeholders including community clinics, academic institutions and non-profit organizations serving the priority population. The coalition will support delivery of a program offering take-home fecal immunochemical tests (FIT) and follow-up services.
