As medical director for pediatric radiology at Arnold Palmer Children’s hospital, I have the privilege of working with the most dedicated team of physician colleagues, technologists, nurses, and research coordinators caring for children that are fighting to overcome a diagnosis of pediatric cancer. In this capacity , I have seen the pivotal role that clinical trials serve in the treatment plan for children to obtain the most advanced care close to home.
Funds raised through Arnie’s March directly benefit care for the children and families in Central Florida battling childhood cancer. The March supports the pediatric clinical trial and research program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children to fund crucial research efforts to fight childhood cancer.
This year, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer is participating in more than 70 clinical trials to develop more effective treatment methods to fight childhood cancer.
