Pier Fish-USFSP / Laughter is the Remedy

Pier Fish-USF St. Petersburg

When the Saint Petersburg Pier closed in early June, the few hundred residents of the Pier Aquarium had to find new homes…but a good neighbor answered the call. Find out how the USF St. Petersburg Student Center became the new residence for some of those sea creatures on University Beat on WUSF TV.

Laughter is the Remedy

On the surface, cancer and comedy don’t seem like they go together well, but an upcoming event at Moffitt Cancer Center aims to dispel that belief. On this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we’ll have a preview of “Laughter is the Remedy,” a night that promises both humor and information.
