The Roundtable is a great opportunity to leverage, expand, and further the great work of the Nevada Colon Cancer Partnership/Nevada Cancer Coalition who will be a central part of the discussion. Discussion and presentations will focus on systems to increase screening, diagnosis and treatment, as well as access throughout the state.
