On the Radio
Last month, University Beat had a preview of USF Health’s Students With Diabetes National Conference – this week, we have a follow-up. Over a hundred young people living with the disease came together in Tampa from over 20 states and three countries. They shared their stories and experiences, received some information, and had a lot of fun! We’ll take you to the conference on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
