IPHA is pleased to announce that Dr. Patricia Canessa, Director of Health Equity and Diversity Programs, has been selected for the 2017 Susan G. Komen / Linda B. Washkuhn Education and Leadership award.
This award, from the Susan G. Komen Memorial Affiliate, is presented to an individual or organization who goes above and beyond to educate and care for the breast health of the men and women of their community. We truly appreciate everything you do to join us in the mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
Dr. Canessa's committment to helping women as they battle this disease, whether it is in her daily work at IPHA , organizing a successful outreach event for Latina women in Cass County, or connecting an uninsured woman with lifesaving breast health services, is second to none. Her multiple outreach programs that target at-risk women truly are saving lives.
The award will be presented at the October 26th Pink Promise Survivor Fashion Show and Luncheon held at the Paradice Hotel in East Peoria Illinois.
Congratulations, Dr. Canessa, what an honor!
