Moffitt Healthy Kidz / HPV Initiative
Summer school took on a healthy twist for more than forty young people, as they spent a day at Moffitt Cancer Center, thanks to the Moffitt Healthy Kidz Program.
Join these high-achieving students on a tour of the Center on University Beat on WUSF TV.
Also: Even though Florida has one of the highest rates of cervical cancer in the country, teenage girls in the state also have the lowest rate of HPV vaccinations. That’s despite the fact the shots would prevent the disease and a number of other ones. Led by clinicians and researchers at USF and Moffitt Cancer Center, a community coalition is going to work on improving the vaccination rate. We’ll have the story on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
When Faith and Love Collide
Susan and Ed Bilbao grew up in the Philippines, in an environment very heavily influenced by Catholicism. Susan worked for religious organizations, and Ed had every intention of becoming a priest.
And while their faith united them, it also presented complications when they wanted to be together.
In this edition of Storycorps Tampa Bay, Susan and Ed discuss his decision to end their relationship to take on an oath of celibacy, and how, over time, they found each other again.
