Georgia CORE Awards & Recognition

2019

President Nancy Paris received the Nikki T. Randall Servant Leader Award from the Georgia Legislative Women's Caucus. Senate Resolution 347 recognizes Nancy for her leadership and many achievements in the health care field.

Since our genetic testing program started in 2012, Georgia CORE has screened 18,840 women, and thousands more through the use of online screening tools. Through the process, the team identified 1,000 patients to be positive, followed up with 800, and still work with 375 of those women actively. For these results as well as her work on credentialing for genetics nurses, Alice Kerber received the President’s Award from the International Society of Nurses in Genetics.

At its 2019 Annual Meeting, the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program recongized Georgia NCORP for Highest Accruing Physicians, Cancer Control Trials, as well as awarding the group with the Platinum Award for both TMIST Accruals and Combined Treatment & Cancer Control.
