FSUCares SPENDING SPRING BREAK ON MEDICAL OUTREACH TRIPS

For some Florida State medical and nursing students, a spring-break trip to South Florida won’t involve a visit to the beach or a bar. This year, like every year since the Florida State College of Medicine welcomed its first class in 2001, these students will be giving out medical supplies and treatment – and getting a cultural education in return.

On Friday (March 4) 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 and FSU nursing students will make the annual trip, along with faculty members. Their destination is Immokalee in Southwest Florida.

The team will arrive in Immokalee Friday afternoon and return to Tallahassee Wednesday. Spring break for Florida State is March 7-11.

FSU medical and nursing students will be available for interviews and photos on:

FRIDAY, MARCH 4
