Lobby Day

Colorectal Cancer is a Legislative Issue

Lobby Day 2017

Colorectal cancer survivors, physicians, nurses and other health care professionals, C4 Board Members, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network Legislative Ambassadors, and other dedicated advocates have gathered at the State Capitol for C4's annual Lobby Day event since 2008. Participants receive the latest colorectal cancer statistics from the California Cancer Registry, and hear from medical and public health experts about screening and best ways to approach legislators.

Participants meet with their legislators to bring information on how colorectal cancer screening saves lives and evidence on the cost-effectiveness of FIT (fecal immunochemical test) testing for broad-based general population screening. Every legislator is presented with a packet of information on colorectal cancer and screening.

Lobby Day is an annual C4 event designed to increase awareness of colorectal cancer screening, generate legislative interest in sponsored legislation, and establish C4 as a trusted resource for colorectal cancer information. Lobby Day Chair Jennie Cook announced that plans are underway for Lobby Day 2016. Details and registration will be available in early 2017. We look forward to seeing you at the next Lobby Day. Please join us!
