On the Radio
Being stuck in the hospital for the holidays is tough for anyone, but it’s especially hard on young people. Students and faculty at the USF College of Nursing are reaching out in a small, but heartfelt way, by handing out teddy bears to 800 young patients in Tampa Bay area hospitals. University Beat on WUSF 89.7 tags along on one of their deliveries, which was only missing Santa and his reindeer.
