The 12th Annual Dialogue for Action on Colorectal Cancer Screening: Prevention Hits the Headlines was held in Baltimore, MD on March 24-26, 2010.

This dynamic conference brought together a multidisciplinary group of 160 health care professionals and advocates hailing from 30 states, the District of Columbia, several tribal nations and urban Indian health organizations to discuss CRC screening against the backdrop of dramatic changes in the health care system.

The 2010 conference agenda included timely presentations and engaging small-group discussions on community prevention, the emerging role of preventive services, featuring CRC screening, in the changing health care system and elements that contribute to successful programs on a shoestring budget.

Of the dialogue attendees, 28% were state of local health department representatives, 22% were nurses and 42% have medical practices in suburban and rural locations.
