A new lunch program titled The TRK to Tumor-Agnostic Care in Solid Tumors: A Pathology-Focused Guide to the Clinical Role of TRK Fusions in Personalizing Cancer Therapy has been added to the FSP Summer Conference taking place on Saturday, July 13, from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. The session will explore how pathologists and oncologists can collaborate to apply precision oncology treatment tools in adult and pediatric patients across a wide range of TRK fusion-positive solid tumors. Experts will discuss the rationale for molecular testing for TRK fusions in a range of cancer settings, including head and neck cancer, GI cancers, breast cancer, and lung cancer, among others, as well as which patients may be candidates for treatment with TRK inhibitors. Other topics will include a guide to selecting and interpreting results of diagnostic testing techniques for confirming the presence of TRK fusions, as well as strategies for using this diagnostic information when making clinical decisions. Attendees will earn one additional hour of CME by attending this session. To reserve your seat for the lunch email email@example.com.
The 2019 Florida legislative session officially concluded on Saturday, May 4th, a day later than originally scheduled due to delayed budget negotiations.

A summary of the bills of most importance to our members is provided on the FSP website here.

We are completing week three of the Florida Legislative Session and this has been a very active time for FSP. Many bills have been filed impacting your practice of pathology. Most importantly, legislation was filed which would have capped pathology reimbursement at 200 percent of the Medicare rate. The FSP Executive Committee was alerted to this legislation, HB 1317 and SB 1790, the day it was filed and your FSP president addressed this in his update several weeks ago.
It is an honor to serve as the next President of the Florida Society of Pathologists. I would like to thank our outgoing President, Dr. Antonio Martinez for his outstanding leadership and service to the FSP Board and the entire membership over the past two years. I look forward to serving alongside the new slate of Executive Committee Members and furthering our mission to provide valuable educational and networking opportunities and advocacy support for our members.
