See, Test & Treat Outstanding Partner Award 2021
Section I: Award Overview:
The CAP Foundation’s See, Test & Treat® program is a comprehensive cervical and breast cancer-screening program that connects women in need to the life-saving diagnostic skills of a volunteer team of health professionals. See, Test & Treat is unique because it provides medically underserved women across the United States with free screening and results, in one day and connection to further follow-up after the program. The program also strives to educate women about the role of the pathologist on their healthcare team, the importance of routine preventive screening and how healthy lifestyle choices reduce cancer risk.
The See, Test & Treat Outstanding Partner Award, introduced in 2019, recognizes and honors a non-pathologist for their contributions and service in support of the See, Test & Treat Program.
