Lisa Richardson, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, discusses the CDC's role in the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative.
Now is the time when the CDC is working to double down on their current efforts, such as a their partnership with the American Cancer Society to have 80 percent colorectal cancer screening by 2018. But then they must look beyond next year, both with this particular project and with the Moonshot in general, to see how they can sustain their efforts against cancer.
