CAP Advocacy Efforts
The College of American Pathologists is rallying support amongst congressional lawmakers for pathologists’ top priorities to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and to stop Medicare payment cuts to pathologists next year.
The Pathologist's 2020 Power List
The Pathologist magazine has announced its fifth annual Power List, highlighting influential figures, thought leaders, and opinion shapers in pathology and laboratory medicine.
Winners were named in four categories:
- "A Solid Foundation" celebrates the educators, mentors, and selfless individuals who go above and beyond to support others.
- "Lab Heroes" is for influential and highly respected professionals in the laboratory.
- "Big Breakthroughs" highlights trailblazers working at the cutting edge and driving forward the future of the field.
- "The Social Network" features social media users who have harnessed online platforms for education, outreach, and community-building.
Earlier this year, the magazine invited the pathology community to nominate those they believed were deserving of an award. 20 individuals in each category were selected by the judging panel.
Herbek Humanitarian Award Winner
Dr. Gregory Dickinson, MD has been named the 2020 winner of the CAP Foundation's Gene and Jean Herbek Humanitarian Award.
Introduced in 2011, the award is named in honor of the late Gene N. Herbek, MD, FCAP, a past president of the CAP who brought the first See, Test & Treat program to Native American women in South Dakota, as well as for his wife, Jean, who shares his commitment. The award honors an individual (pathologist or non-pathologist) who has made innovative and unique contributions to advance the See, Test & Treat program.
See, Test, and Treatpathologists
The See, Test & Treat program provides free cervical and breast cancer screening to medically underserved women across the United States. CAP member pathologists, together with a team of health care professionals, volunteer their time and expertise to deliver screenings and same-day (or prompt) results, as well as follow-up care or treatment recommendations, all at no cost to the women served. The team also strives to educate women about the pathologist’s role on their health care team, the importance of routine preventive screening, and how healthy lifestyle choices can reduce cancer risk.
