In 1977, FLASCO was formed as a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to facilitating and promoting multidisciplinary efforts to improve patient care in Florida. FLASCO continues to make strides in promoting excellence in care of patients afflicted with cancer and hematologic disorders and leads efforts to respond to policies and legislation that threaten to compromise patient access to quality cancer care. FLASCO is gaining momentum as more professionals use us as the catalyst to develop partnerships, share knowledge, and stand together to demonstrate strength and determination to move forward in the battle against cancer.
FLASCO consists of over 2,850 members that include physicians and their supporting staff, allied healthcare, and industry representatives that represent the oncology professionals of Florida. FLASCO will continue to be recognized as a nationally respected state professional society as we stand together as the Voice of Oncology in Florida”.
