The Prevent Cancer Foundation is now requesting nominations for our annual Cancer Prevention Laurels Awards. Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. EST on Monday, January 26, 2015.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation created the Cancer Prevention Laurels in 2003 to recognize and celebrate innovators and leaders in the fight against cancer. The laurel is an ancient Roman symbol of tribute, honor, victory, merit and reward.
Awards will be presented in the following three categories to recognize work in any area of cancer prevention and early detection:
- Cancer Prevention Laurel for National Leadership: Awarded to an individual who has demonstrated exemplary leadership in cancer prevention and early detection at the national level.
- Cancer Prevention Laurel for Innovative Programs: Awarded to an individual who has developed and implemented an innovative program in cancer prevention and early detection deserving of national recognition.
- Cancer Prevention Laurel for Advocacy: Awarded to an individual whose personal passion for improving cancer prevention and early detection has resulted in positive change in the public, professional or political arena.
Multiple nominations are accepted. Here’s how to do it:
- Provide a brief letter for each nomination describing why the nominee should be recognized with a particular award and a short biographical sketch
- Email your nominations to Oyekemi Oyebode at firstname.lastname@example.org
The awards will presented at the 2015 Dialogue for Action™: Expanding Access Through Innovation, which will be held in April in Baltimore. The Laurels awards are co-sponsored by the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
