25th Anniversary / Outreach - Jasmine Greenamyer, MPH Vice President, Colon Cancer Alliance “I know I speak for many different stakeholders when I say that the state and American Indian/Alaska Native Dialogue for Action conferences on colorectal cancer were influential momentum changers. The Foundation facilitates a process that helps state and community leaders strategically develop and implement impactful initiatives.
