UW Medicine and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) are the 2022 recipients of the Legacy & Leadership Health Equity Champion Award for promoting breast cancer screening.

This award is presented by the American Cancer Society of Washington State for our organizations’ work in the 2021 Return to Screening Learning Collaborative, a grant project initiated by the American Cancer Society to bring health systems from across Washington state together in response to the substantial decline in cancer screening rates due to COVID-19. The project was led by UW Medicine Primary Care and Population Health and the SCCA with an emphasis on health equity and reaching populations that are underserved.
