The Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) supports the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance (NCCRA) and is dedicated to the eradication of colorectal cancer. This initiative was co-founded by Katie Couric, Lilly Tartikoff, and the EIF in 2000, and serves to promote the importance of early medical screening, as well as ongoing cancer research. 

Listen to the newest Screen for Life public service announcement featuring award-winning actress, Meryl Streep. 

“There is so much in life we can’t control but here is something we can, colorectal cancer," said Meryl Streep. "It effects men and women and is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S.. Most of these cancers start as polyps and screening finds polyps. Take control. Do everything you can to prevent colon cancer."
