Clinical Trial – Reducing Rural Colon Cancer Disparities – Colon Cancer

The proposed research fills a significant gap in rigorous intervention studies to eliminate rural-urban disparities in cancer outcomes. The persistent poverty and health disparities in Southern Illinois is a prime example of rural cancer health disparities. The investigators’ approach to developing and testing the multi-level intervention will serve as a model for working in other rural areas.
