USF Health Service Corps - Farmworkers

USF Health Service Corps - Farmworkers

To help mark the recent Mexican Independence Day, and to reach out to an underserved community, the USF Health Service Corps and Dade City-based “Farmworkers Self-Help” held a health fair fiesta. We’ll take you there on University Beat on WUSF TV.

USF Health Service Corps - Farmworkers

The USF Health Service Corps allows students across many disciplines – future doctors, nurses, pharmacists and public health workers – to hone their skills, while also helping communities around the university. On this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we join corps members as they put on a health festival in Dade City for migrant farmworkers who might otherwise not get the healthcare they need.
