EuropaColon – España (Spain)

Europa Colon Espana

EuropaColon- España (Spain) was founded in September 2006 following the overall objectives of EuropaColon. The association is open to all people wanting to get involved in promoting the objectives of the association and all the patients and families of people with colorectal cancer.

In 2016, EuropaColon Spain has initiated a program for providing information on CRC in the senior centers. The aim of this new project was to involve the population at risk (the over 60 years olds) in the screening programs. There have been six events with about 300 participants.

The organization has participated in a national cancer patients Congress with two lectures – one given by a doctor and the other by a psychologist. The aim was to disseminate the information about our work and activities with patients in order to increase membership. 

We have started our first regional delegation of EuropaColon Spain with three lectures on psychology and a round table with four oncologists. There have been over 250 participants.
