This thesis examined the role of health insurance and race and ethnicity as contributing factors to low colorectal cancer screenings. The literature supports that type of health insurance and race and ethnicity play an important role in low colorectal cancer screening rates. Using data collected from the 2007 California Health Interview Survey, data was analyzed and it was concluded that a relationship does exist between colorectal cancer screening rates and the type of insurance people have and their race and ethnicity.
Studies show that there are several barriers and disparities contributing to low colorectal cancer screenings in America. These studies need to continue so that they bring awareness to the public. Education is also important so that the public can be well informed when making necessary decisions to help prevent this deadly disease.
