Resource Summary: Screening for colorectal cancer is a key preventive measure that can save lives by detecting cancer early when it’s most treatable. However, Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers (MSAWs) face unique barriers that make accessing this crucial screening more challenging. Exposure to pesticides can increase their risk for cancers, including colorectal cancer, yet MSAWs often have lower health literacy and may not speak English, making complex medical information difficult to access.

Resource Details: This comprehensive tool answers general questions about colorectal cancer, details screening tools available, and provides an evidence-based curriculum to boost screening rates within special populations, specifically Migrant Seasonal Agricultural Workers. Perfect for health centers aiming to impact community health outcomes significantly.
