Mary’s Fund Award 2018: ECANA Conference

In 2016, the Patient Advisory Network established Mary’s Fund, an annual scholarship award to honor the memory of founding CERTAIN Patient Advisory Network Patient Partner Mary Roberts Scott. In 2018, we were thrilled to grant the Mary’s Fund award to the Endometrial Cancer Action Network for African-Americans (ECANA), to support patient partner involvement in and travel to the first annual ECANA Conference for Community, Education, and Research Training.

The first national ECANA conference was held in March 2019 in Honolulu, Hawaii, in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer. Check out the ECANA website for a report of the community-building, learning, and planning for the future that took place at the ECANA Conference.
