Georgia’s 5th Annual Cervical Cancer Awareness Day

January 25, 2022
Cancer Pathways joins Georgia’s Department of Health in recognizing the achievement of organizations focused on cervical cancer awareness and prevention.  

On January 20, 2022, Cancer Pathways planned and participated in Georgia’s 5th 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. 

Cancer Pathways received the HPV Champion award in 2020 and again this year in 2022 from the Georgia Cancer Control Consortium for our leadership in planning, coordinating, and executing two Georgia ecosystem-wide HPV education events in the community. No other U.S. State hosted more than one ecosystem-wide HPV event in 2021! We have also been recognized for  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. 

At this year’s event, Cancer Happens Program Manager, Jana Mastrogiovanni (Meet Jana), had the honor to return as the primary coordinator and helped facilitate another successful event with nearly 150 participants including legislators, medical professionals, and community members. A recording of this years event is available to watch online HERE
