FluFit Campaign

Shasta County is ranked the worst amongst other California counties, 52nd out of 58 related to deaths. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Most of these deaths could be prevented with routine screening. The least invasive, least expensive form of screening involves an annual home stool tests, also known as fecal immunochemical tests (FIT). If done yearly and with good follow-up, FIT can prevent colorectal cancer or catch it early when it can be cured.

Our Quality Improvement team is partnering with Operations to launch an evidence based campaign called FluFit in the fall of 2019 (Oct-Dec 2019). The intent of this campaign is to improve colorectal cancer screening rates by providing a take home fecal immunochemical test (FIT) to eligible patients when they receive their annual flu shot. Thus, this annual flu shot campaign creates an opportunity to reach people who are also due for colorectal screening. Promotions for this campaign will start in Oct, watch out for campaign posters!
