Tackling one of Florida’s biggest health threats

Tampa PresserA proposed bill to create the Florida Consortium of National Cancer Institute Centers announced by Florida Gov. Rick Scott Jan. 28 could potentially help the UF Health Cancer Center and the UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health bring even more extensive research and patient care to Floridians with cancer. The proposed legislation, which would be funded through the William G. “Bill” Bankhead Jr., and David Coley Cancer Research Program, would help enhance the quality of cancer care in Florida through research, patient care and education. The goal is to create more National Cancer Institute-designated centers in Florida to address the increasing cancer rates in the state. — Melissa Lutz Blouin
