Dr. Sophia


A beam of light that loves what she does and does it with intention. 

Sophia George, Ph.D., is a Gynecologic Oncology Researcher at the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. George is proud to work at a cancer center that is at the forefront of providing the best care to those battling cancer in the community, including underserved demographics such as women in minority groups. 

“The community is supportive of us doing this work with them,” says Dr. George. “You don’t find that everywhere.”

As a participant of the DCC, Dr. George values the opportunity to connect with her colleagues, community, family and friends for a common cause that impacts critical research funding.

“You are going to be amongst people who are fighting the same fight,” Dr. George says about the DCC. 

The result of the DCC goes beyond the final dollar amount – allowing Sylvester to recruit top scientists, design clinical trials and be transformative.

“We see this work needs to be done, and we’re doing it with intention.”
