CLEARWATER - State Sen. Jack Latvala of Clearwater recently received the 2014 Moffitt Momentum Award during Moffitt’s annual Business of Biotech Conference. The award was created by Moffitt Cancer Center as a way to honor leaders in the community who have championed the efforts of Moffitt and cancer research.

It is given to those public servants “whose tireless efforts have benefitted the entire institution over the years, and in turn, who have made a difference in the lives of those individuals battling cancer in Florida,” said Dr. Alan List, President and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center.

Sen. Latvala was instrumental in passing legislation in 2012 to increase Moffitt’s share of Florida’s cigarette taxes. The additional funding that tax provided to Moffitt enabled the institution to begin construction on its new McKinley Avenue campus, which is scheduled for a 2015 grand opening. The facility will create hundreds of jobs and will give Moffitt expanded capacity to treat many more cancer patients.

“I am honored to receive this very prestigious award because it symbolizes a partnership that I have always enjoyed with the Moffitt family over the years,” said Latvala, “Moffitt is a top-notch institution that has always gone above and beyond to help members of my community and to touch the lives of cancer patients from all over this state, and I am proud of the work we have collaborated on over the years.”
