Florida Skin Center loves the communities where we work and live, and we are formalizing our philanthropy by launching our “Dermatology from the Heart program.” As part of the program, our team members will have the chance to submit charitable organizations for consideration throughout each year that they believe would benefit from our assistance, and that embody the goals and ideals of Florida Skin Center. Each December, we will present four (4) charitable organizations and programs as finalists for the consideration of our FSC professional family and our team will cast their votes for their winner.
Our team members are the most valuable asset we have, and it is only fitting that they help to select which group will receive these funds. We are all blessed to live and work in Southwest Florida, and we recognize how important it is to give back to the communities that we serve. We are very excited to introduce this program to our guests, and we look forward to your feedback on how we can make it even better! We encourage you to visit their websites to learn more about these incredible programs and if you feel inspired to support their efforts, We would be pleased to award you with a complimentary FAN membership for a year! Simply email our coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your donation.
