We are pleased to introduce Molly Dworkin, director of development at UF Health Proton Therapy Institute. She hit the ground running last fall just in time for our annual Play Golf. Fight Cancer.® Classic and she has kept the momentum going. Responsible for securing philanthropic gifts and donations to further the clinical and research programs at the institute, Molly is building relationships with proton “alumni,” proton friends and others in the community. Among her recent initiatives are an annual fund appeal and a campaign to raise funds to renovate the pediatric recovery and infusion room.
“I am so energized by the positive spirit of the patients and caregivers as well as the physicians and staff,” said Molly. “Knowing that the good we do today will benefit future patients is a tremendous motivation. I look forward to helping secure that future.”
The Pediatric Recovery and Infusion Room Renovation Campaign will transform the area to reflect the exceptional level of care we provide. The proposed renovations will incorporate soothing colors and child-friendly elements, a more dynamic layout and visual attractions such as LED lighting, video screens and other technology, providing optimal comfort and privacy for our youngest patients and their families.
If you are interested in supporting this cause or other aspects of clinical care or research, please contact Molly at (904) 588-1519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
