FluFit Campaign

Shasta County has some of the highest death rates due to colorectal cancer in California, ranking 52nd out of 58 counties. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States for both men and women. Most of these deaths could have been prevented with routine screening. The least invasive, least expensive form of screening uses 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 treated and cured.

SCHC is launching an evidence-based campaign called FluFIT this fall (Oct.-Dec. 2019). With this campaign, we hope to improve the colorectal cancer screening rates in our patients. Patients who are eligible for this screening will get to take home a FIT Kit when they come in to receive their annual flu shot. Ask your clinician about FluFIT. With one visit, you can get twice the prevention!

SCHC Receives Quality Improvement Award!

We are pleased to share that SCHC has received a Quality Improvement award from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA - the federal government). We were recognized in three categories:
