May 10, 2013: Commemorating luncheon honoring GEORGE PAPANICOLAOU: "A PIONEER IN MEDICAL RESEARCH"
2012 UNESCO celebrated the 50th anniversary of the death of the prominent scientist Dr. George Papanicolaou and his groundbreaking work in the field of cytology and uterine cancer detection. On this occasion the Consulate of Greece in Houston in collaboration with the Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center organized a commemorating luncheon event consisting of presentations, videos and photographic timeline of Papanicolaou’s life and work.
Papanicolaou invented the famous Pap-test which detects the early stages of uterine cancer in women saving millions of lives worldwide.
The luncheon was addressed exclusively to female population and was attended by physicians, the medical staff of the Memorial Hermann Hospital and prominent Greek female professionals who live and work in the area of Houston.
See below photos as well as the opening remarks by Consul of Greece George Papanikolaou.
