The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH) received two grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to work with health systems to implement evidence-based interventions and supporting strategies to increase cancer screenings and to conduct quality improvement learning collaboratives. This work will include working with health systems including Federally Qualified Health Systems and clinics who provide services and primary care including colon cancer screening opportunities.
