Students With Diabetes Conference Recap / Dr. Stephen Klasko
Friendship and facts were the focus of USF Health’s Students With Diabetes’ National Conference. The recent three day event brought together more than 100 young adult diabetics from over 20 states. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to the Conference and introduces you to all three types of diabetics.
In September, Doctor Stephen Klasko will leave USF, where he served as CEO of USF Health and dean of the Morsani College of Medicine since 2004. WUSF’s Mark Schreiner spoke to Dr. Klasko about his legacy at USF, his outlook for the University’s future, and why he’s going back to his hometown of Philadelphia to become president of Thomas Jefferson University. You can hear their extended conversation on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
