he University of Central Florida College of Medicine held the graduation for its first class of medical students, the first time an entire class received free tuition, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

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.
