Our next guest is Dr. Carey August – Director of Anatomic Pathology at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago; Board Member, College of American Pathologists’ CAP Foundation.  She will discuss why is Cancer is the leading cause of death for American women. Many of those women live in underserved communities and have no access to life-saving screenings like mammograms or pap tests. Even worse, many more women who work hard every day, can’t afford health care at all and forgo their yearly screening to put food on the table for their family. The College of American Pathologists believes no woman should die because they don’t have access to these health screenings and health care. The good news, the CAP Foundation sponsors an innovative health education program for women who don’t have the resources or the support to receive cancer screening and care. For more information, please visit www.foundation.cap.org
