The CAP Foundation lives its social mission by bringing the life-saving skills of pathologists to those disengaged from healthcare in the United States through our See, Test & Treat® program.
A recent study shows an increased risk of women dying from cervical cancer than previously thought. CAP member Crystal A. Moore, MD, PhD, FCAP, sites the importance of our See, Test & Treat program to deliver free cervical cancer screening, same day results, and a plan for follow up care, to underserved women. This story is part of a recent USA TODAY article.
On Community Health
See, Test & Treat gives thousands of participants—both women and the family and friends they bring with them—the experience of overcoming their barriers to health care, connecting face-to-face with friendly providers, and learning how to schedule important care. Our program also connects hospitals, clinics, clinicians and volunteers with the communities they serve.
On Patient Care
Eva Wojcik, MD, FCAP, lead pathologist at Loyola University Medical Center, recognized a unique need in her own hospital’s backyard: Many women don’t have access to health services. In light of this, Dr. Wojcik spearheaded an effort to host the first Illinois-Chicago area See, Test & Treat in Maywood.
“We sometimes forget there are human beings behind each and every specimen,” Dr. Wojcik said. “Behind each and every glass slide is somebody’s mother, somebody’s father. These are people, and we’re here because of our patients.”
