See, Test & Treat Outstanding Partner 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 provides medically underserved women across the United States with free screening and results—in one day—and connection to further follow-up care after the program. The program also strives to educate women about the role of the pathologist on their health care team, the importance of routine preventive screening, and how healthy lifestyle choices reduce cancer risk.

The See, Test & Treat® Outstanding Partner Award, established in 2019, compliments the Herbek Humanitarian Award by recognizing and honoring a non-pathologist partner for their contribution and service in support of the See, Test & Treat program.
