A visit with Gov. Rick Scott

Just saying hello

Governor Rick Scott visited UF Health

In May, Gov. Rick Scott visited the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital to talk with patients and speak with UF Health physicians. During his visit, he met Sue Baker, a patient in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, and physician John Wingard, M.D. The visit was conducted in part to raise awareness for his initiative to fund the Florida Consortium of National Cancer Institute Centers. In March, Scott and leaders from UF Health and Orlando Health held a press conference announcing a drive to help Florida cancer centers achieve prestigious National Cancer Institute designation.
