What is the Wyoming Colorectal Cancer Screening Program?
Colorectal cancer is the number two cancer killer in Wyoming, and yet it is very preventable with screening. The Wyoming Cancer Control Act, passed in 2007, legislated a comprehensive cancer control plan for Wyoming. As a part of this act, the Wyoming Colorectal Cancer Screening Program was established and began on July 1, 2007.
The Wyoming Colorectal Cancer Screening Program is state-funded through tobacco settlement funds appropriated by the Wyoming Legislature.This program eliminates the cost barrier to screening by providing free colorectal screening tests, including colonoscopies, to eligible Wyoming residents.
