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.

On the Radio

Community activist Marilyn WIlliams speaks at "Poverty and Inequality: A Forum on Research, Action, and Community Engagement" held recently at USF
Poverty Forum

They’re some pretty big concepts: poverty and the effect it has on the education of low-income children in poor neighborhoods. A group of USF faculty and researchers is hoping to take ideas developed across disciplines and turn them into action that will make a difference, with the help of the community, elected officials and non-profit and public agencies. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes you to the group’s first forum and talks with some of the people behind this major undertaking.
