"Receiving the Clinician Teacher Development Award gave me critical funding for my project to understand and reduce the barriers to cervical cancer screening for Latino women in the Boston area. I am grateful for the generous support and mentoring that MAO has given me, which was essential for the success of these projects and my career over the past seven years." —Marcela del Carmen, MD, MPH, Associate in Gynecology and Obstetrics, 2005 CTDA
