See, Test & Treat 2021 REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS 

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) Foundation cordially invites CAP Members in partnership with non-profit organizations to apply for funding to implement a See, Test & Treat® program within their communities in 2021. 

Applications must be submitted online by Tuesday, September 15, 2020 using our online application system application website (link). Please review the following information to determine whether your institution would be eligible to apply for this funding.  

Description

See, Test & Treat is a CAP Foundation initiative that delivers free, pathologist-led cervical and breast cancer screening to vulnerable women in the United States. 

CAP Members lead collaborative, multidisciplinary volunteer care teams to engage underserved patients in community health care services by offering same-day screening, results, education, and immediate access to follow-up care in a culturally appropriate setting.

In a single-day, culturally appropriate program, women receive a Pelvic and Clinical Breast Exam, a Pap test with same–day results, a Screening Mammogram with same-day or prompt results, connection to follow-up care plans, interpretive services, translated educational sessions and materials, and a healthy meal. More information can be found in the See, Test & Treat Standard Operations Manual. It is strongly recommended that applicants review this manual and this webinar prior to applying for grant funding.

Eligibility

Funding is open to all CAP Members. All applicants will be considered regardless of age, race, gender, or national origin. The pathologist leader must be part of the on-site health care team providing diagnostic services at the See, Test & Treat program.

  2. Same day results for cervical or breast cancer screenings
  3. Culturally, linguistically appropriate health education for your target communities
  4. Connection to care for any individual who is need of follow up diagnostic care or treatment, regardless of health insurance status 

Applicants unable to meet all four of these components are not eligible to apply for funding.
