Prague was the destination for the latest WEO CRC SC meeting on April 4, 2019, which brought together international researchers and experts to learn, engage, and collaborate on the latest scientific findings, research, and innovation in the field of colorectal cancer.

It was the first time that WEO organized a CRC SC meeting at ESGE Days to further extend its reach. The feedback was extremely positive; participants enjoyed the lively discussions and valued the input from experts from all over the world. The spirit of the meeting was dynamic and allowed for personal and inspiring talks, and speakers shared their views on how to overcome limitations of programs.

The key to the success of all CRC Screening Committee programs is to provide a platform for participants to discuss opportunities for international cooperation. It is also a platform to promote outside-the-box thinking and pragmatism: after all, the best screening program is the one in which target populations actually participate.

Why not join the CRC Screening Committee! The next CRC Screening Committee meeting will take place in San Diego, USA, on May 17, 2019. Check out the WEO website for more details on the CRC Screening Committee and upcoming meetings here.
