Jessica MacIntyre, M.S.N., ARNP, director of clinical operations for the Office of the Director at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, was honored at the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Women Empowering and Embracing Women awards program on December 1. She received the “Inspiring and Achieving Award” for her work in health care.
“The award recognizes individuals like you who inspire other people to achieve greater things due to your commitment and dedication to the health care industry and to your patients,” said Chamber president/CEO Liliam M. Lopez.
“It is an honor to receive this award,” said MacIntyre, who is co-leader of the Oncology Nurse Practitioner Fellowship Program at Sylvester. “As women, we should all work together to empower and mentor each other. I have been blessed with mentors who have helped guide me in my career, and I have always felt that the best way to show my appreciation is to pay it forward.”
