USF Students march during the "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event MIle in Her Shoes / CAREN Simulator
Over the past year, there’s been a growing focus across the country on sexual violence on college campuses. At the University of South Florida, student groups have been attempting to raise awareness of the issue for a few years. One very visible way they’ve done so is through the annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event, where male students, faculty and staff don women’s high heels and make a commitment to end violence against women. We’ll take you to this year’s event on University Beat on WUSF TV.
Also: It’s a million dollar-plus, state-of-the-art virtual reality simulator that’s bringing together University of South Florida engineers and health practitioners to assist those with reduced motor skills. We'll introduce you to CAREN (Computer-Assisted Rehabilitation Environment) on this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7.

StateImpact Florida: Why Miami-Dade High School Students Are Teaching Their Classmates About Health

Description: 
Abuse. Drugs. Mental health issues. It’s tough enough for anyone to talk about those problems. It can be even harder for teens facing them for the first time. That’s why the Health Information Project (HIP) trains high school juniors and seniors to lead freshmen through a year-long health education program. The program is in 37 Miami-Dade public high schools, plus one private school. It has trained more than 1,000 juniors and seniors on how to teach and talk to younger schoolmates about health issues
