UAB’s Isabel Scarinci will be honored as the first recipient of the TogetHER for Health’s Trailblazer of the Year award. For the first time in history, the world is on track to end cervical cancer forever.

TogetHER for Health honors the contributions of Isabel Scarinci, Ph.D., Vice Chair for Global and Rural Health in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Senior Advisor for Globalization and cancer at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center, with the first-ever Trailblazer Award for her tireless dedication to saving the lives of women in Alabama and around the world.

The virtual awards ceremony will feature the voices and perspectives of healthcare providers, researchers and dedicated advocates who seek to permanently eliminate cervical cancer as a threat to women, their families and communities around the world.

“I am honored to receive this award from such a committed organization that has done so much around the world for the elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem, and delighted that it has partnered with us to eradicate cervical cancer in our home state of Alabama,” Scarinci said.

Together for Health is a global partnership starting the movement to end cervical cancer everywhere. The mission is to raise awareness, support catalytic programs and fight for the political and financial resources needed to end this disease.
