Moffitt Expansion / Campus Safety
Ground has been broken on Moffitt Cancer Center's new McKinley Drive Outpatient facility, which will serve patients with a variety of cancers, while also creating a number of jobs for the Tampa Bay area. University Beat on WUSF TV has more on what the plan means for Moffitt, USF and the community.
Recent headlines reporting sexual attacks on USF’s Tampa campus have made some students and their families fearful. However, university officials point out trends show the actual number of assaults being reported is down. We find out why, and what’s being done to keep students safe on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
At the ground-breaking for the new McKinley Outpatient Facility, former Florida Rep. H. Lee Moffitt talks about the cancer center that he helped create and which now bears his name.
