The Florabel G. Mullick Travel Award was established in 2015 to honor the memory of Florabel García Mullick, M.D., ScD, F.C.A.P. The award was funded by friends and family of Dr. Mullick and ensures that pathologists from under-served countries can attend the USCAP Annual Meeting with a travel grant of $2,500 or more.
Dr. Mullick was a Diplomate of The American Board of Pathology in Anatomic Pathology and a distinguished graduate of the Senior Executive Program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. In 1992, she was awarded the prestigious rank of Meritorious Executive by the President of the United States. In 1993 and 1999, she received the Distinguished Executive Award, the highest honor bestowed on a civilian in the US federal government. Her visionary support and tireless efforts in establishing a Telepathology Program at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology led to the formal dedication in 2005 of “The Florabel G. Mullick, M.D., Video teleconference Center.”
In 2007 Dr. Mullick became the first civilian Director of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. In 2008 Dr. Mullick was elected President of the International Academy of Pathology. Each year USCAP honors the contributions and memory of Dr. Mullick with the Florabel G. Mullick Travel Award.
