Colorectal Cancer Awareness and Prevention CME Webinar

Colorectal Cancer Awareness and Prevention CME Webinar

Calling all clinicians! Join us for a free CME webinar on colorectal cancer awareness and prevention. Learn about the important role of nutrition and lifestyle for risk reduction.

Gastroenterologist Angie Sadeghi, MD, will present on colorectal cancer awareness and prevention during this one-hour webinar. In this presentation, you’ll learn about the prevalence of colorectal cancer in the United States, including groups at increased risk. The known causes of colorectal cancer, both environmental and genetic, will then be discussed. Finally, available prevention methods will be reviewed, with a focus on screening tests and nutritional interventions.  

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the changing prevalence of colorectal cancer in the United States and groups that are disproportionately affected. 
  • Review available screening methods for colorectal cancer and the benefits and downsides of each. 
  • List three lifestyle and nutrition factors that can increase colorectal cancer risk and interventions to address these risks. 

Physicians, nurses, and dietitians will earn one continuing education credit for attending this webinar.
