Suicide is a leading cause of death for young people. This week on Florida Matters, we talk with a woman on the front line of suicide prevention and we meet a man whose family was forever changed when his oldest son took his own life.
Dr. Sylvia Campbell and Jeanne Hardin-Gres
Dr. Sylvia Campbell in a general surgeon at St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa. She donates thousands of hours in service to charitable causes, including treatment of the working poor who visit the Judeo-Christian Health Clinic in Tampa. She also leads medical mission trips to Haiti and Uganda to care for the poor and sick. Jeanne Hardin-Gres, an Army reservist often called into active duty in recent years, is the nurse anesthetist who has accompanied Sylvia to Haiti. The two spoke about their commitment to service in a StoryCorps booth in Sarasota back in January, 2006.
