Cancer Pathways joins Georgia’s Department of Health in recognizing the achievement of organizations focused on cervical cancer awareness and prevention.  

On January 21st, 2021, Cancer Pathways coordinated Georgia’s 4th Annual Cervical Cancer Awareness Day in partnership with the Georgia Department of Public Health. We are honored to be a part of this event, which acknowledges and celebrates the work of over 30 local organizations that focus on cancer prevention and awareness efforts. 

Last year, Cancer Pathways received the 2020 HPV Champion award (January 15, 2020) from Georgia Cancer Control Consortium for our work delivering our Cancer Happens cancer risk reduction program to high schools and youth organizations across Georgia. Cancer Happens educates, empowers, and engages teens on how to reduce their future risk of cancer. The program is offered as a self-paced e-Learning course, or alternately, as a live, virtual presentation by one of Cancer Pathways’ health educators.

At this year’s event, we had the honor to return as the primary coordinator and facilitator, as well as producing the main infographics for Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. A recording of the event is available to watch online, facilitated by Cancer Happens Program Manager, Jana Mastrogiovanni (Meet Jana).
