We are pleased to share some exciting news in this issue of Moffitt Momentum.
Patient advisor Paul Lombardi discusses how the newly opened Moffitt McKinley Outpatient Center was designed from the patient perspective and with patient well-being in mind.
Also in this issue you will meet Joel Stettler, one of our many dedicated nurses who helped the cancer center achieve the prestigious Magnet nursing designation. Patients rely on Magnet designation as the ultimate credential for high-quality nursing.
Here at Moffitt prevention is tied to all we do. The special magazine insert provides an overview of Moffitt’s cancer prevention initiatives over our history. Our prevention efforts include discoveries related to various infections and cancer, such as HPV vaccine research, led by Dr. Anna Giuliano, who is featured in this issue.
Also related to cancer prevention, I’d like to express our deep appreciation for Richard Gonzmart and his unwavering support of our community and the cancer center as well as his efforts to promote prostate cancer screening and early detection. His story depicts how one person can make a huge difference in our fight against cancer.
These interesting stories emphasize Moffitt’s ongoing commitment to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer through scientific research, new treatments, patient care, community education and more.
We hope you enjoy reading them.
