Dr. Susan Vadaparampil was named a 2019 St. George National Awardee by the American Cancer Society. This award is presented to outstanding community volunteers in recognition of their distinguished service in achieving the ACS's strategic goals. Congratulations!
Dr. Claire Conley is the sole winner of this year's prestigious American Society of Preventive Oncology-Breast Cancer Research Foundation 2019 Research Fellowship in Cancer Research award. The project Dr. Conley submitted is titled "Barriers to Screening Breast MRI Utilization among Patients at Elevated Risk (B-SUPER)." Although women at high risk for breast cancer should have annual breast MRI's, few women actually receive this screening. This study will provide patients who receive care in the community setting to share their perspectives on the barriers to receiving breast MRI.
Dr. Vadaparampil received an American Cancer Society (ACS) Research Scholars grant for cervical cancer screening research. To celebrate the award, ACS held a Research Award Presentation at Hope Lodge on Friday, May 17th, 2019. Some of the ACS Board Members were in attendance, along with local leadership and volunteers, and she gave a really lovely talk. Congrats Dr. Vadaparampil!
