Pilot Study in Spring 2024 with Colorectal Cancer Patients at U of M

COLLABS Pilot Study Details

One clear message from our clients in our comprehensive 2023 survey, was the need to learn about Cancer Legal Care earlier in their cancer journey, preferably at the time of diagnosis or at the start of treatment.

One clear message from our clients in our comprehensive 2023 survey, was the need to learn about Cancer Legal Care earlier in their cancer journey, preferably at the time of diagnosis or at the start of treatment.

In spring 2024, we will put this learning into action with a pilot study on the impact of an early legal care intervention. The pilot is possible thanks to the efforts of Arjun Gupta, MBBS, and his team at the University of Minnesota, and funding from the Minnesota Colon Cancer Research Foundation, and will provide for a "Legal Care Checkup" for newly diagnosed colon cancer patients as part of their standard treatment plan. The video clip above features Dr. Gupta talking about this exciting work as he accepted the Sarah DeBord Memorial Grant at the MCCRF Gala on February 3, 2024.

We look forward to sharing the findings of the COLorectal Cancer Legal and Administrative Burden Support (COLLABS) pilot later this year.
