National Attention for FL Public Health Initiatives

Gainesville Sun

The Gainesville Rural Women's Health Project, which educates Hispanic women in several rural Florida counties on early detection of breast cancer, is a finalist for a national award, the Gainesville Sunreports. 

Another story in the Sun cites Alachua County’s FluMist vaccine program, which has resulted in fewer emergency room visits for children. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
