Boca Raton Regional Hospital Assistant Vice President Elected as Vice Chair of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network

Maureen Mann, assistant vice president of Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute and Christine E. Lynn Women's Health & Wellness Institute, has recently been elected as vice chair of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN).

In her role as vice chair, Mann will work with other leadership at the ACS CAN to leverage the power of government to end suffering and death from cancer. She will work with volunteers across the country to educate elected officials on important cancer-fighting policies that positively impact legislation by supporting cancer research, prevention and treatment.
Mann previously served on the ACS CAN’s Board of Directors as treasurer. She was a leader in Florida’s successful effort to raise the state’s cigarette excise tax by $1 per pack in 2009, the first increase in more than two decades. She played a key role in defeating a proposal to cut millions from Florida’s tobacco control program earlier this year and she helped grow the South Florida Policy Forum into one of the largest ACS CAN fundraising events in the country.
