FSU COLLEGE OF MEDICINE PROVIDING HEALTH SCREENINGS ON SUNDAY

Florida State University medical students and faculty physicians will be providing health screenings on Sunday in a local neighborhood where residents have either recently experienced homelessness or are at risk of homelessness. The majority of residents either have no health insurance or are covered through Medicaid and face challenges in accessing health-care services.

The event is part of an ongoing relationship between the College of Medicine’s FSUCares student organization and Good News Outreach’s community of Maryland Oaks Crossing. Sponsored by the Chapman Foundation, the program provides regular and ongoing opportunities for the College of Medicine to address some of the health-care needs faced by at-risk individuals and families.

Sunday’s event includes health screenings and a social to welcome both returning residents and new residents who are not yet familiar with the health services made available by the College of Medicine and Good News Outreach.

The ‘Super Sunday’ health-screening event will take place:

SUNDAY, SEPT. 11
2-6 P.M.
MARYLAND OAKS CROSSING
3103 Bicycle Road, TALLAHASSEE
