Executive Director’s Message – April 2024

Kristin A. Heath, DBA, MBA, MHA

As we enter the spring months, it's a time of recognition for the invaluable contributions of our healthcare professionals. We honor child life specialists, Doctors' Day and National Nurses Week during this time. At the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute, our team is instrumental in making our cancer treatment facility world-renowned.
From the moment you reach out to us, through your treatment journey and into survivorship, our priority is your care and well-being. Our experts and compassionate staff are committed to supporting you every step of the way.
The child life program is dedicated to advocating for our youngest patients, ensuring they understand the treatment process while maintaining a sense of joy and playfulness during their cancer journey.
Our physicians are at the forefront of cancer treatment, spearheading clinical trials and research while providing compassionate care. Their dedication to innovation is shaping the future of cancer treatment.
Our nursing team is exceptional. They provide daily care to patients, conduct research and specialize in specific cancer sites. Whether you're a pediatric or adult patient, or transitioning into survivorship, our nurses are here to support you.

For each occasion, we encourage you to reach out to the members of your medical team and thank them for their care and dedication.

Kristin Heath, DBA, MBA, MHA 
Executive Director
