Bringing Science Home
This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV takes a closer look at USF Health’s new initiative “Bringing Science Home” through the eyes of the people who formed it and the patients who will both be served by the project and help direct it. Also: USF Health has a very ambitious plan: transforming the way people with chronic illness live their lives, and they’ve received a very ambitious gift of almost six million dollars to help make that dream a reality. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM takes you to the formal launch of “Bringing Science Home,” a program that will not only teach patients how to live happier lives, but educate their families and healthcare providers too.
