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



Nominations are now open for the 2024 Matt Mumber M.D. Award for Excellence in Cancer Patient Navigation and the second 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 was named for Dr. Mumber (pictured left), a radiation oncologist in Rome Ga., with a goal of emulating his passion for patient-centered care. Past recipients have shown leadership in advancing navigation to improve patient outcomes. This is award is monetarily sponsored by the Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology and Georgia CORE.

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 organization's success. Donations are welcome in support of this grant. 

Both honorees will be highlighted at the "For the Benefit of All - Investigator's Seminar" on Feb 21-22, 2024 in Atlanta, GA.
