Prosthetics-Rock Climbing (September 15, 2008)
Researchers at the USF School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences, backed by a one million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Education, are looking at the best prosthetics that amputees can use in such activities as rock climbing and kayaking - 'extreme sports' that are being used more and more as rehabilitation activities. University Beat takes you to a test session and introduces you to two champion rock climbers who have scaled to great heights in both competition and in life.
Tools for Schools (September 8, 2008)
About three hundred young people in Tampa's University Area Community have new school supplies, thanks to the generosity of the USF students, faculty and staff who participated in the "Tools for Schools" drive.

USF Health-Panama (August 25, 2008)
The USF Health International Foundation has formally opened the doors of its Panama office, giving medical professionals from around the region the opportunity to learn about the latest medical advances without having to come to the U.S. At the same time, students from around USF Health (like a recent group of College of Nursing pupils) get the chance to experience what it's like to practice medicine in a foreign country.
