A new report by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network said Florida is falling short on the prevention and care of cancer.
The report ranks several policies in each state as either falling short, some progress, doing well or no funding. Categories include smoke-free laws, physical education time requirements, breast and cervical cancer early reduction and access to palliative care, among others.
Florida was ranked doing well in one category, tobacco tax and price increases over time, some progress in seven categories and falling short in four.
Florida is falling short in Medicaid coverage of tobacco cessation, indoor tanning device restrictions, increased access to Medicaid and restrictions on tobacco, according to the report.
