Dr. Klasko goes to Washington

Dr. Stephen Klasko, CEO for USF Health and dean of the Morsani College of Medicine, was among the guests at President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address the evening of Jan. 24, 2012. In the U.S. Capitol at  the invitation of  First Lady Michelle Obama and U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, Dr. Klasko was sitting just a few rows from the First Lady for the annual State of the Union address.

Earlier this month, Dr. Klasko met the First Lady in Richmond, VA, where she announced an initiative of the country’s top medical schools, including USF’s, to ensure high-quality, integrated care for veterans and their families.
