The USF Health Morsani College of Medicine Alumni Society was pleased to honor Dr. Margarita R. Cabrera-Cancio, BS ‘79, MD ’82, FACP as the inaugural recipient of the Outstanding Service Award.  She received a standing ovation as the award was presented during the MCOM Alumni Reunion on October 21, 2016.

Dr. Cabrera-Cancio humbly accepted the award and spoke beautifully about her gratitude and dedication to USF.  She shared how her family arrived in the United States as political exiles in 1974.  Within 2 years, she was ready for college but had very limited financial resources.  USF offered a full scholarship for her undergraduate degree.  When she was accepted to medical school, she again received financial aid.
