The ACS Quality of Life Award honors persons who routinely excel in providing care to their patients experiencing cancer, going beyond the bounds of their duties. Lane W. Adams emphasized the importance of a “warm hand of service” during his vice presidency of the American Cancer Society.

This award represents Adams’ credence to serve and enhance others being.

Mullett has committed his time to lung screening and education by chartering Lung Screening Excellence in Kentucky and serving as co-investigator at Kentucky Lung Education Awareness Detection and Survivorship.

As a stage 4 liver cancer survivor, he approaches patient care uniquely in comparison to his colleagues. Mullett is known for his devotion to providing availability to quality care for underrepresented citizens in Kentucky by working with nonprofit, government and medical groups.

Mullett currently serves as medical director for both the Markey Cancer Center Affiliate and Research Networks. He has also served as a colonel in the Army Reserves, with deployments in 2004 and 2012.
