Dr. Maria Teresa Bourlon Receives International Women Who Conquer Cancer Mentorship Award

ASCO is honoring Maria Teresa Bourlon, MD, MS, of El Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán, and Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, with the 2023 Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation, International Women Who Conquer Cancer (WWCC) Mentorship Award.

“There is a phrase I like a lot: ‘The sky is not the limit when there are footprints on the moon.’ So, as a woman, when I see another woman in a leadership role, it makes me realize that there are no limits for our dreams and goals, and we must pursue them,” Dr. Bourlon said. “As women, we can learn the skills and develop the abilities to become leaders in oncology.”

Dr. Bourlon will receive the award during the 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting on June 4 and participate in a session on mentorship and career development. The WWCC Mentorship Awards recognizes extraordinary leaders in oncology and role models who have excelled as mentors for their outstanding commitment to the professional development of female colleagues as clinicians, educators, and researchers in oncology.
