Flu-FOBT and Flu-FIT Programs would be ideal for community health centers that rely on home stool testing for colorectal cancer screening and that had lower than desired colorectal cancer screening rates. Many of these clinics organize teams each year to do flu shot clinics, and it seemed natural to add the offering of FOBT or FIT to eligible patients as part of these activities.
