American Cancer Society Florida Division Names Chair-Elect
Executive Director of the Holy Cross Cancer Center to Assume Role
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Maureen Mann, M.S., M.B.A., F. A.C.H.E. has been named 2014 Florida Division Board Chair Elect for the American Cancer Society. Following a one year term in office, she will become the chair of the Division Board in 2015.
“There are currently 425,000 volunteers for the American Cancer Society in Florida and I will be proud to serve them as we work to give people the tools and training they need to fight cancer,” said Mann, who is executive director of the Michael and Dianne Bienes Cancer Center at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale.
Mann, who is a longtime American Cancer Society volunteer and has held numerous leadership positions with the Florida Division and local Broward County chapter, also serves on the national board of directors of the Society’s sister advocacy organization, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Inc.
As the largest voluntary health organization, the American Cancer Society is dedicated to saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. The Society's efforts have contributed to a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991 and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Mann will have an even greater impact on the American Cancer Society’s efforts in the fight against cancer throughout Florida, including Broward County, because of her role as Chair Elect of the Florida Division Board of Directors.
