She is well known for her medical skills and leadership among the public and her colleagues and peers in the medical community."
Dr. Greatrex will receive the award for her passion, dedication and commitment to winning the fight against cancer, according to The Cancer Foundation. She is one of the nation's leading experts on breast imaging and dedicates a great deal of time to educating women about breast cancer. SJ Magazine has named her a "Top Doc" for the last three years.
