Nominations for the Excellence in Cancer Patient Navigation and Cancer Community Service Awards now open!

9/06/2022, Georgia CORE

Nominations are now open for the 2023 Matt Mumber M.D. Award for Excellence in Cancer Patient Navigation and the first annual Phillip H. Street Cancer Community Service Award. The navigation award is funded and given by the Cancer Patient Navigators of Georgia each year to an individual in the amount of $2,000. It began in February 2013 and named for Dr. Mumber (pictured left), a radiation oncologist in Rome Ga., with a goal to emulate his passion for patient-centered care. Past recipients have shown leadership in advancing navigation to improve patient outcomes.

The new community service award is named for the late Phillip H. Street (pictured right), a longtime friend of Georgia CORE. An award of $5,000 will be given to an individual or partnership that has contributed exceptional service to Georgia’s cancer community. Phillip served as legal counsel to Georgia CORE for nearly 20 years and was instrumental in the success of the organization. Donations are welcome to support what we hope to be an annual grant. 

Both awards will be given at Georgia CORE's 20th Anniversary Gala on Feb. 18, 2023.
