Fighting the flu

Smiling doctor, senior woman, and little girl, hispanic. They are both smiling as she gets her bandaid placed on. They are at a free shot clinic. There are volunteers working behind them.

The UF College of Nursing once again was a major part of the Control Flu Alachua County program as nursing students distributed flu shots to Alachua County Public Schools students. Joan Castleman, R.N., a clinical associate professor, and Sally Bethart, R.N., a clinical assistant professor, spearheaded the effort, which was the college’s 60th anniversary community service project. Working with school nurses, the nursing students prepared and administered vaccines. – Tracy Wright
