CRI Certificate Program

The CRI Certificate Program was founded in 2020 as a virtual webinar-based program open to all students between 8 – 12th grade. Due to the return of in-person seminars and events, the CRI’s program will no longer be virtual.

Starting in March, the CRI is starting an in-person “Conquering Cancer” community seminar series. This community seminar will feature a researcher, a clinician and a community representative all talking about colon cancer research, treatment and patient support.
