"It is a tremendous honor to serve as the president of the College of American Pathologists, an organization rooted in the pursuit of excellence in laboratory medicine and patient care," said Dr. Herbek. "I look forward to continuing the CAP's legacy and evolving the organization to advance the specialty to meet the needs of patients today and tomorrow."

Dr. Herbek has been actively involved in the CAP for more than 24 years and has served on the CAP Board of Governors, most recently as president-elect and secretary-treasurer. In addition, he currently serves as a CAP medical laboratory inspector, a role he began with the College as a resident. He also has served as chair of the Finance Committee, chair of the Council on Membership and Public Affairs, and vice chair of the Council of Scientific Affairs, as well as others. He began his CAP involvement as a member of the CAP Insurance Committee in 1989.

Currently, Dr. Herbek serves as medical director of the Methodist Women's Hospital laboratory and medical director of the Transfusion and Coagulation Services for the Pathology Center at Methodist Hospital, both in Omaha, Neb.  He is board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology and is a graduate of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and its Residency Training Program.  

Among his many professional honors and awards, Dr. Herbek has received the CAP Outstanding Communicator Award and the St. Luke's Regional Medical Center, Sioux City, Iowa, Physician Hero Award. Dr. Herbek launched the CAP's first See, Test & Treat®, a program that provides free cervical and breast cancer screening to underserved and uninsured women in the United States. See, Test & Treat is made possible through the volunteer services of CAP member pathologists and their clinical health care colleagues and supported through the generosity of the CAP Foundation donors. In 2012, the first Gene and Jean Herbek Humanitarian Award was presented to a CAP member pathologist to celebrate their impact in the lives of women in need though a See, Test & Treat program.
