Information about Letitia Price, PA-C:
Letitia Price, PA-C is a Physician Assistant with 10 years of experience in the field of Hematology and Oncology. She currently works at Cancer Treatment Centers of America located in Newnan, Georgia.
She obtained undergraduate degrees and certificates in Medical Technology from Bethune Cookman College (BCC) and The Florida State University (FSU).
She then specialized in Immunohematology (Blood Banking) and worked for The American Red Cross in the Reference Lab in Savannah, Georgia. She worked at Community Blood Centers of South Florida (CBCSF) in Lauderhill, Florida, advancing from a bench technologist to become the Assistant Director, overseeing 2 locations and a staff of 22.
Letitia had a desire for direct contact with patients and wanted to be more involved in their care, so she returned to school in 2004 to obtain her Masters of Clinical Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. She graduated with a GPA of 3.623 and was a 2005 Barry University PA Program Dean’s Academic Scholarship recipient. Since her graduation, she has worked in the field of Hematology and Oncology.
While an undergraduate at The Florida State University, Letitia was initiated into the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She is now an active financial member of the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter.
In addition to serving the community with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, she has served as a Team Captain for The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life from 2011-2017, raising almost $25,000. She served on the Executive Leadership Team for Henry County Relay for Life from 2015-2017, securing sponsorships and recruiting teams.
Letitia has a strong desire to promote cancer awareness in the African American Community. Her cousin is a two time breast cancer survivor and was diagnosed at the age of 30. Only then did Letitia’s Mother reveal that she was a breast cancer survivor also. She chose not to disclose this information while Letitia was in college. Her Mother does not know her staging nor has any records of her diagnosis. This inspired Letitia to be an advocate for “Stopping the Silence” and to encourage African American families to discuss their family health history. Letitia has had annual mammograms since the age of 25 due to her high risk.
Letitia is a Godmother to three and a devoted “Auntie”. She loves to read, travel, cook and bake. She makes an awesome PoundCake!
