On Television

Patient Deborah Fay Fullwood (center) talks w/Dr. Frederick Slone & med student Grace Tidwell at the USF BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic
How does dancing and singing improve the health of a community? USF Health students and faculty show us the answer, as they recently held a talent show to benefit the USF BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic, which serves low-income, uninsured University Area residents. University Beat on WUSF TV has a look at their work, both onstage and in the Clinic.

On the Radio

USF Health students perform at the BANDAids for BRIDGE talent show

The USF BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic is a place where uninsured residents near the Tampa campus can get free healthcare. It’s also a place where USF Health students learn how to run a clinic while getting hands-on experience working with real patients.
This week’s University Beat on WUSF Public Media pays a visit to the Clinic, as well as to “BANDAids for BRIDGE,” a student and faculty talent show that raised quite a bit of money for the project.
