Taylor, who handles marketing at Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation champions fundraising and marketing efforts that relate to healthcare.

When it happens to you, this all becomes very real. Having world renowned physicians, facilities and clinicians in our backyard makes for an ongoing effort.”
