An Innovative Program to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening Rates

What is the FluFIT Program?

FluFIT is an award-winning and research-tested program that helps health care teams increase colorectal cancer screening rates by offering fecal immunochemical tests (FIT) to eligible patients during annual flu shot campaigns. Successful FluFIT Programs have been implemented in primary health care settings across the United States.
