In The News
A recent study conducted by the CCA to identify concerns and knowledge gaps about colonoscopies found that six out of 10 participants rely on the internet when seeking information about this screening method. To learn more about this and other findings from the study, read the Colonoscopy Perceptions Survey Summary on our website, the go-to online resource for information on prevention and screening as well as treatment and disease progression.
