Since 2015, the three institutions in the Florida Academic Cancer Center Alliance have made a considerable impact on cancer research in the state of Florida. This research led to a direct improvement in the treatment and care of the residents of Florida. The state’s three academic cancer centers —the University of Florida Health Cancer Center, the Moffitt Cancer Center, and the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center — make presentations and reports on their impact to both the general public as well as state and local officials on a regular basis. Each of these presentations and reports can be found below.
The movement to create the FACCA program began in the summer and fall of 2013. Officials from Governor Rick Scott's office and the Office of Policy and Budget's Health and Human Services policy unit worked together to create a series of documents which serve as the foundation for the FACCA program.
Delivered in public meetings on February 12th 2019, a ROI report was presented to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services by the three directors of the Centers: Tom Sellers, Jonathan D. Licht and John Cleveland.
On February 9th 2021, Stephen D. Nimer, Director of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, presented the 2021 FACCA report to the House Health Care Appropriations subcommittee.
In a series of meetings in 2022, presentations were made to Chairman Jay Trumball of the House Appropriations Committee and Chairman Aaron Bean of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Health and Human Services. An Economic Impact Report was released publicly in 2022. Each of these presentations and reports are available below.
