New campaign to encourage cancer screenings after millions skipped appointments during the pandemic

According to the Community Oncology Alliance, there was an 85 percent decline in breast cancer screenings and a 75 percent decline in colon cancer screenings due to COVID-19 in 2020.. Millions of Americans delayed medical appointments, causing a major decline in cancer screenings, diagnosis and treatment. The Community Oncology Alliance and CancerCare have partnered to launch Time to Screen, a campaign to encourage adults to schedule screenings they may have missed. Dr Ravi Rao, an Oncologist and Hematologist at California Cancer Associates for Research & Excellence (cCare) and Community Oncology Alliance Board Member joined Good Day LA to talk about the importance of getting screened. https://timetoscreen.org/
