Students lead hurricane relief efforts

Doctoral students collected donations

In response to devastation from Hurricane Michael across the Florida Panhandle, College of Medicine students are volunteering in affected areas and collecting money, donations and more for those impacted.

Oct. 19

  • A truck full of donations from UF, UCF and USF pulls up to the FSU College of Medicine’s doors, as medical schools across the state join FSU’s effort to provide food and supplies to areas impacted by Hurricane Michael.
  • Some donations directly benefit med students and their families. Students also plan trips to Marianna, Gadsden County, Calhoun County and Bainbridge, Georgia, to deliver donations.
