“I am so honored to receive this recognition from FAPSC, and I can’t thank my amazing team enough,” Sarlo said. “Everything we do is in pursuit of our mission to equip and empower our students for success in healthcare careers and is driven by our steadfast commitment to positively impact the health and wellbeing of our community.
