Promoting colorectal cancer screening to be there for moments that matter.

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting men and women in the United States; and it doesn’t always have symptoms. The CDC needed to spread the word about the new screening age of 45, while reminding people of the range of available screening options.

Our approach features three interwoven stories of people who prioritized this screening to stay healthy for the moments that matter. The video pairs first-person storytelling with a novel projected flashback approach, blending past and present to position screening as a connecting action for these pivotal life moments. Each story builds on the one before to tell a single unified message of protection through preventative screening.
