Membership Initiative Update

On Thursday September 11th, Dorothy and I, with the assistance of Robin Hutchinson, Executive Oncology Territory Specialist for Sanofi, who scheduled appointments for us, visited several mid-Florida practices.
The purpose of the trip was to inform these practices the benefits for them to become members of FLASCO.
We met with current FLASCO members, Dr. David Decker, Executive Director of Florida Hospital Cancer Institute and Leslie Aldrich, MBA, Administrator. From Florida Hospital Orlando we moved on to see Dr. David Robinson of Premier Hematology and Oncology in Kissimmee, an affiliate of Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, again discussing why all of the practice members would benefit from becoming an active member of FLASCO. Dr. Robinson was encouraged by the benefits FLASCO could offer and thanked us for visiting with him and his practice.
From Kissimmee we proceeded to Orange City to visit the Mid Florida Hematology and Oncology offices of Drs. Sharma and Ortega et al. This also was again a very productive meeting for FLASCO.
We subsequently made a site visit to the Florida Cancer Specialist office in Orange City and discussed with Dr. Victor Melgen how he could expand his role with FLASCO and thanked him for all members in that practice being FLASCO members.
A very special thanks is extended to Robin Hutchinson of Sanofi for arranging these appointments and delivering us safely for all these appointments and then back to our starting point.
