Saint Leo collaborates with Moffitt Cancer Center

Student speaking with a Moffitt employee at a table.
At the inaugural Moffitt & Saint Leo University Community Expo, senior Maurice Ferguson, a computer science major, talks with Jennie Jones, director, cancer registry/surveillance informatics at Moffitt Cancer Center, about the cancer registry profession and the Certified Tumor Registrar® exam.

Saint Leo University hosted the first Moffitt & Saint Leo University Community Expo on April 14 to showcase career and educational opportunities.

As Moffitt plans construction for its massive Speros FL medical research park in Pasco County, it is partnering with the university to create job, internship, and educational opportunities not only for Saint Leo students, but also for surrounding community members. Both institutions are committed to developing and supporting people as a whole in body, mind, and spirit, so collaborating seemed ideal.

The community expo was open to the public and offered resume reviews; a career fair; wellness and mindfulness activities; a networking lunch; and informational sessions including discussion of Saint Leo’s nursing, medical humanities, biology and natural sciences, and social work programs as well as career opportunities at Moffitt. Participants had the opportunity to engage in discussions about partnership opportunities with Pasco County and Saint Leo and learn about the exciting cancer research being conducted by Saint Leo students and faculty and by Moffitt personnel and students.

The Saint Leo University Brand Marketing & Communications Office provides internal and external communications, as well as media outreach, for the university. The staff covers stories about alumni, university programs, student initiatives, and community projects.
