COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD RECIPIENTS:
May 2013 Undergraduate Student recipient: Ian Loy
Ian has volunteered at the Million Hearts Health fair, the 5 Minutes for your Health at Florida Hospital Tampa, the Neuropathy Awareness Week activities, and the Neuropathy Support Group. During these activities, he recorded pertinent health information like BP, blood glucose levels, and cholesterol levels, provided education about lifestyle changes, and helped to raise awareness about particular diseases. He writes that these experiences which are “Fun and exciting ways for him to learn, network, and give back to the community,” help him to grow as a future healthcare professional and allow him to make a difference in the lives of other people.
May 2013 Undergraduate Student recipient: Rebecca Jones
Rebecca completed various activities during the month. These included assisting with a home rehabilitation project for a single mother who lives in Ybor city, supervising and facilitating a bounce ride for the Booker T. Washington Spring Carnival, and collecting and recording weight, body fat percentage, height, waist circumference, and BP information at TGH employee health fair at the Life Link Center. Rebecca also serves as an ongoing member of her church’s greeting team. Rebecca notes that volunteering gives her the opportunity to interact with the older and younger people in her community and to demonstrate that she cares for and about her community. She also hopes to influence the younger people to also give back to their community.
