Targeted Colon Cancer Outreach Program

The Targeted Colon Cancer Outreach Program (TCCOP) is a statewide education and outreach program designed to spread the word about the importance of colon cancer screening. KCP is working with District Cancer Councils, local and state partners to increase knowledge about screening and colon cancer risks, increase colon cancer screening rates, and to improve the stage at which new cancers are diagnosed. For a detailed report on TCCOP’s outcomes with community partners, please click here.

TCCOP provides a broad range of community and provider interventions which includes educational programs, dissemination of materials, and promotional information for Dress in Blue Day and March Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month activities. KCP has developed a Resource Kit, which includes templates to promote these interventions.
