Edith Mitchell, M.D., FACP, named 2012 recipient of ASCO Humanitarian Award
Date:4/5/2012

PHILADELPHIAEdith Mitchell, M.D., FACP, a medical oncologist at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson's Kimmel Cancer Center (KCC) and Clinical Professor of Medicine and Medical Oncology in the Department of Medical Oncology at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, has been named the 2012 recipient of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Humanitarian Award for her personification of the society's mission and values, and for going above and beyond the call of duty in providing outstanding patient care.

For her efforts, Dr. Mitchell will be presented with the award during the opening session of the ASCO Annual Meeting on Saturday, June 2.

The ASCO Humanitarian Award recognizes an oncologist who provides outstanding patient care through innovative means or exceptional service or leadership in the United States or abroad. It is presented to an ASCO member who distinguishes himself/herself through voluntary and non-compensated humanitarian endeavors.

"Receiving this award is a great honor, and I thank the Society for the acknowledgement," said Dr. Mitchell. "A big part of my work over the course of my career has focused on helping those in need of medical careto reach those who have no access to it, who have no opportunities for health, and no means to seek out conventional medical advice. It is important to help these individuals realize that simple changes in lifestyle can have a dramatic impact on cancer care and one's health. I look forward to continuing on this path."

Dr. Mitchell has spent her medical career helping individuals in medically underserved areas and demonstrating the importance of community service and outreach. She has participated in flood relief, supportive patient advocacy, and organized vaccination clinics.
