Experimental: Colorectal Health Research Champion trainees
Colorectal Health Research Champion (CHRC) trainees receive 5 education sessions on colorectal cancer, clinical research, biospecimen donation, ethics, and presentation skills. The CHRCs will invite others in their social networks to present to them this educational information, following the train the trainer model of health education.
Behavioral: Colorectal Health Research Champions
20 Colorectal Health Research Champions will be recruited from Danville, Emporia, Lawrenceville, Richmond, and Petersburg.
The Colorectal Health Research Champions will receive training in four specific areas during group educational sessions.
Colorectal Health Research Champions will be asked to disseminate the four defined messages on at least two occasions to small groups in their social network in a venue of their choice (house chats, faith-based, social gatherings, family gatherings, etc.). We ask that each CHRC participant host 2 chats with 5-10 people in attendance at each chat. We expect that at least 200 participants will be invited to chats through 10 CHRCs.

Intentions are measured on a 5 -point likert scale.
- Increase in knowledge and intentions related to biospecimen donation and clinical trial participation. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]Participant knowledge and intentions related to biospecimen donation and clinical trial participation will be measured using pre/post questionnaires, with each correct answer being worth one point (20 total points).
