Every Fall & Spring semester, the Society of Health and Medical Physics (SHMPS) participates in a service event at the American Cancer Society Winn-Dixie Hope Lodge, where they prepare and serve a delicious dinner to patients and caregivers.
The American Cancer Society Winn-Dixie Hope Lodge in Gainesville, which opened in 1986, offers 46 guest rooms located near treatment centers in the area. The Hope Lodge staff are committed to providing a nurturing home away from home for their guests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
