FSU College of Medicine's
Pediatric Outreach Programs
Dance Marathon at FSU is proud to support our local Tallahassee Community. In addition to supporting our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, 50% of our efforts are to support the FSU College of Medicine's Pediatric Outreach Programs. The principal focus of the College of Medicine is on meeting the primary-care needs of Florida's residents, with a particular emphasis on rural, minority, elderly, and other underserved populations. This also includes helping the school-based programs in Gadsden County, research, and more.
The College of Medicine has been working with Gadsden’s health department and school district to expand its services in student health centers at James A. Shanks Middle School and George W. Munroe Elementary School. Medical school faculty, FSU medical students, and psychology graduate students work part-time, thanks in large part to the donations raised by Dance Marathon.
