Abstract

We analyzed a statewide database in Florida to identify the racial, socioeconomic and geographic disparities associated with MIS for colorectal cancer at the state level. Consistent with national studies, MIS for colorectal cancer in Florida is associated with insurance status and geographic location. There are patient-level regional differences for racial disparity in MIS for colorectal cancer in Florida.
