    As you may know, the National Cancer Institute Center for Global Health and regional partners are preparing for the 8th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research, 17th April 2020 (ahead of CUGH 2020).  In addition to the current Call for Abstracts, they are actively seeking nominations for the 2020 Rachel Pearline Award. Here's a brief blurb about the award, with link to the nomination form in case you are interested:

     

    We invite you to submit your 2020 Rachel Pearline Award nominations to recognize individuals who have made major contributions to global cancer research and practice, and whose work focuses on low-and-middle-income countries. The Rachel Pearline Award is presented in honor of Rachel Pearline, MD, MPH, posthumously awarded in 2016 following her death at the age of 38 from gastric cancer. For her work, she received a prestigious Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellowship and Tulane's award for "Outstanding International Relationships". Dr. Pearline viewed the practice of medicine as a privilege, always striving to serve her patients better. The 2020 Rachel Pearline Award recipient will be invited to give a keynote lecture at the 8th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research. The deadline to submit nominations is November 1, 2019.
