FSU MEDICAL STUDENTS TO SPEND SPRING BREAK
ON OUTREACH TRIPS

If it’s spring break, don’t look for the students of FSUCares on a beach or at a bar. Members of the Florida State University College of Medicine student group will be giving out medical supplies and treatment — and getting a cultural education in return.

On Sunday, March 2, they will be available for interviews and photos as they pack medical supplies donated by the Tallahassee community. First- and second-year College of Medicine students will make the annual trip, along with six faculty members. They will split into two groups: one will go to Immokalee in southwest Florida and one will travel to a small village in Panama. Spring break is March 10-14.

FSUCares’ mission is to increase outreach to underserved communities, said Kimberly Driscoll, a faculty adviser for FSUCares.

Students will be available for interviews and photos on:
