FGCU Nursing Students Travel To LaBelle

LABELLE, FL. -- Eight Florida Gulf Coast University Nursing students completed a semester of "Thursday's in Public Health". They traveled from their Lee County Campus every Thursday to LaBelle where they learned about all aspects of Public Health.

For several months, the students shadowed the departments at FDOH Hendry (School Health, Environmental Health, Preparedness, Migrant Health, Women's Health, Immunizations, Epi, etc.) They also had the opportunity to visit the Shelters in Hendry County immediately after Hurricane Irma. On Thursday, Nov 16th, the students toured the Hendry County Emergency Operations Center.
