FSUCares’ annual service learning trip to Immokalee, FL is an excellent opportunity for students to provide health screenings to the migrant workers of the community. Students conduct health measurements such as blood pressures, glucose readings, heights and weights, and eye screenings, and help in providing medical education as well. These screenings take place in the fields, outside of church, and other convenient places for the workers in the community. Health supplies, toiletries, clothing, and children's books are also distributed. This service learning trip gives students an opportunity in aiding an underserved population of Florida while improving their clinical skills as well continue FSUCOM's relationship with the Immokalee community.
