Meryl Streep Promotes Screening in New Videos

CDC's Screen for Life: National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign informs men and women aged 50 years old or older about the importance of regular screening for colorectal cancer. This year, Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep joins the Screen for Life campaign, appearing in new TV and radio public service announcements. She talks about how much there is in life that we can't control, but says "here's something we can: colorectal cancer." She describes her own screening experience, and urges men and women to get screened beginning at age 50.

Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Colorectal cancer screening saves lives, but many people are not being screened as recommended.

If you're 50 years old or older, getting screened for colorectal cancer could save your life.
