The CAP Foundation-- the philanthropic arm of the College of American Pathologists (CAP)-- champions patient-centered and humanitarian roles for pathologists, striving to connect people, especially those in need, to the specialized, life–saving skills of pathologists.

One of the most impactful of these humanitarian programs is called See, Test, and Treat. The program provides free cervical cancer screenings, results and same-day follow up to uninsured and underserved women. Dedicated CAP member pathologists, together with a team of health care professionals, donate their time and expertise in a dignified setting at no cost to the women served. Women are seen, tested, and treated in one visit—removing significant barriers to preventive and follow-up care, such as arranging childcare or additional time off work.

On August 18, 2012, the program served more than 170 women at the Nhân Hòa Clinic in Garden Grove, California. The women also received HPV testing, results and follow-up care as needed. Many received free mammograms as well. The Nhân Hòa event was organized by Dr. Si Nguyen, MD, FCAP.

Dr. Nguyen and five of his fellow APMG pathologists, worked with clinicians at the clinic which primarily serves the Vietnamese Community. The volunteer pathologists interacted directly with patients providing interpretation of pap screening tests and counseling.

Below are two videos created by Affiliated Pathologists Medical Group that highlight the event. The first is a publicity piece called Postcards and Snapshots that the CAP Foundation debuted at the CAP national meeting in September, 2012. The second is an interview with a volunteer OBGYN physician who talks to the heart of the program-- the engagement with pathologists, clinicians, and patients.




The video called Postcards and Snapshots highlights the See, Test and Treat program in Garden Grove, California at Nhân Hōa Clinic.
