Inflatable colon exhibits are used in tribal communities as tools for culturally tailored health education. The goal is to increase awareness of CRC symptoms, screening, and to guide CRC discussions. The inflatable colon exhibits improved tribal community knowledge on CRC and intention to get screened, which may lead to increased screening rates, decreased CRC incidence, mortality, and late-stage diagnoses. Coordinated use of the clinic patient outreach and trained tribal facilitators make this an effective tribal community and clinical linkage
- Promoting early detection by raising tribal community member awareness and knowledge on CRC symptoms, risk factors and screening tests.
- Change attitudes/beliefs by reducing misconception about risk factors and screening.
