oneThe University of Central Florida has recently created a new PBS channel, WUCF TV, to highlight the good news in and about the Central Florida region. The show is called “ONE” and its premise is that, despite us being millions of residents, thousands of cities, business and institutions, in the end, we are one community. The July episode featured a segment highlighting UCF nursing and medical students working with residents in the Dominican Republic. Each summer, medical and nursing students and faculty from UCF head to the Dominican Republic to offer free medical clinics to residents in rural communities. WUCF traveled with the team to see the students tackle language barriers and a lack of medical supplies and facilities, while learning a lot about their own medical skills and people they came to help.
