In 2000, March was established as National Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Awareness Month, and it has become an important time to have conversations and spread awareness. But it doesn’t start and end with March — we know the importance of updating your CRC knowledge throughout the year. At Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2022, you’ll be able to access the latest CRC research and clinical updates that you need, plus opportunities to connect with colleagues on this topic.
With the DDW Colorectal Diseases Track, you can easily identify CRC-related education. DDW Tracks will be used in attendee planning resources, as well as during the meeting in the Poster Hall and on the ePosters site. Below, you can browse CRC sessions that will be offered.
Don’t forget to register by March 30 to receive a discounted rate. Society member postdoctoral fellows, trainees and students receive free registration through this date.
