Assess the impact of concurrent eligibility for multiple sources of government-reimbursed health care services on survivorship for colorectal cancer patients; 3. List at least two differences in smoking habits and smoking cessation rates between male and female veterans that are suggestive of the need to tailor a smoking cessation program specifically to women veterans; 4.
