The Durham County Colorectal Cancer Screening Workgroup, Duke Division of Gastroenterology, and Duke Cancer Institute received a SCOPY Award from the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) for "Best Culturally Inclusive Social Media Event” for their entry “Duke Cancer Institute Facebook Live Event for Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.”
The SCOPY Award recognizes the achievements of groups in their community engagement, education, and awareness efforts for colorectal cancer prevention.
“We are inspired by your commitment to raising colorectal cancer awareness during a difficult time and wish you, your family, colleagues, and community well during a challenging year,” wrote Becky Abel, M.Ed., Manager, Communications & Member Publications, American College of Gastroenterology, in her email to the event planners and participants announcing their selection to receive the award. “All of the SCOPY submissions for 2020 will be featured in a booklet shared with the members of the College. Though we cannot safely convene in person this year, the College will continue to honor innovative and impactful community education programs to raise awareness of colorectal cancer.”
