    A College and Community Government Agency Collaborate to Open a Health and Wellness Center

    A private liberal arts college finds the ideal partners in a local government agency and We Care, TLC, to open a clinic with a mission to deliver high quality and cost effective healthcare, prescription services and wellness programs to their employees.   We'll discuss the clinic model, employee experiences and offer a few reasons for why the clinic model has resulted in a 3-year positive trend in employee wellness and the employers' bottom line.

    50 Shades of Pink Gala to Benefit The Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation

    Donor Transforms Cancelled Wedding into Celebration Benefiting Cancer Patients

    The Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation is thrilled to announce the first annual 50 Shades of Pink gala event. This French-themed dinner and celebration will be held at the Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore on September 20, 2014. Festivities begin at 6:00 PM with a reception and opportunities to shop and network.

    When Barbara Long’s wedding was cancelled, she was faced with a dilemma. She had already paid a deposit for the reception and it was nonrefundable. Friends encouraged her to host a party, but it was important to Barbara to use this opportunity as a way to celebrate life and help others. After learning about the FCS Foundation and talking to Beth Bush, the foundation’s manager, Barbara chose to donate the deposit she had paid to the venue and chair a fundraising event to benefit the FCS Foundation; thus, 50 Shades of Pink was born!

    The Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation believes no one should have to choose between paying their rent or utility bill and paying for their cancer treatment. The foundation was established to assist qualified individuals who are undergoing treatment for cancer and need assistance paying their essential, non-medical, living expenses. By helping with bills such as the rent or mortgage, a car payment, auto insurance, electricity, and/or utilities, patients are able to focus on their health and recovery. 

    Tickets for the event are $75 each and can be purchased at http://foundation.flcancer.com/50-shades-of-pink/. The paid and volunteer staff of the FCS Foundation hope many from Tampa and surrounding communities will attend 50 Shades of Pink to help bring Barbara’s event to life, and as a result, directly impact the lives of many people who are battling cancer.

      January 23-25, 2015

      Conrad Miami, Miami Florida

      FLASCO Members Luis R. Raez, MD & Caio Rocha Lima, MD, invite you to attend this Meeting.

      This is a two day course designed for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNP), physician assistants (PA), oncology nurses, registered pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and radiation therapists. General practitioners (internal medicine and family medicine) will have the benefit of a state of the art review of the standard of care and new developments in cancer therapy. Residents in training and fellows from these specialties are encouraged to attend. Topics in solid tumors and hematological malignancies will be reviewed; that will include topics in breast cancer, gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies, head and neck cancers, hematological malignancies (i.e. multiple myeloma, CLL and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma), genito-urinary cancers (GU), brain tumors, malignant melanoma, and non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) will be presented. There will also be a special session devoted to the area of supportive care in oncology, with emphasis on bone metastases, hypercalcemia, and management of chemotherapy related side effects like febrile neutropenia. The areas of focus for this conference will include the review of current standards of care in the treatment of all of the aforementioned malignancies and new developments in these areas of cancer care.

      Emphasis on the molecular diagnosis and individualization of cancer therapy based of molecular profiling. Presentations from latest national (ASCO or ASH 2014) and International (ESMO 2014 and IASLC 2014) meetings will be reviewed and guidelines for cancer care will be emphasized. The participants in the meeting will have the opportunity not only to hear outstanding reviews of these topics but also engage in personal interactions with our oncology experts in the field that have national and international recognition during our questions and answer sessions.
