What are some of your goals as the incoming president of FLASCO?

As a new president of FLASCO, we have several goals. We are working with 12 industry partners in statewide projects that benefit cancer therapy outcomes and patients. For example, one of the projects I love the most because I’m a lung cancer doctor is lung cancer screening. Statewide we only screen 5% of all the patients that are at risk of having lung cancer. It is our goal to increase significantly that proportion. So that is one of the important projects that we have. We have other projects regarding access to drugs, payment of drugs, healthcare outcomes [and] most of these projects involve patient care and quality care.
