About

Effective cancer screening tests reduce morbidity and mortality related to cancer. However, use of effective cancer screening tests among eligible individuals remains below national targets. Our research group is working with primary care practices, health systems, insurance providers, and patients in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho to develop and test systematic approaches for improving cancer screening including breast, colorectal, and lung cancer throughout the region.
