Dr. Bryan Green was invited to speak at the 2018 National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable in Baltimore Maryland on November 15. This is a national coalition co-supported by the American Cancer Society and CDC, which focuses on increasing colorectal cancer screening rates throughout the nation. He presented the results of an ongoing program in which gastroenterologists have partnered with the University of South Carolina Center for Colon Research to provide over 3,000 free screening colonoscopies to uninsured residents of South Carolina. He and the partners of Digestive Diseases Group were the first Gastroenterologists in South Carolina to begin to participate in the program when it began in 2008. Now it involves over 80 Gastroenterologists, 19 endoscopy facilities, 5 hospital systems, 12 pathology organizations and 13 anesthesiology organizations.
