Hurricane Relief Puerto Rico
The UF Chapter of the Delta Omega Public Health Honor Society is partnering with the College of Medicine for the Puerto Rico donation drive in efforts to collect needed items for Hurricane Maria disaster relief. The College of Medicine has a system in place for the drop off of goods and then a plane to get them to Puerto Rico. Until further notice, there are three locations for the collection boxes: the first floor of the Harrell Medical Education Building, inside the COM Admissions/H. James Free Center office, the first floor of the HPNP building, and the lobby of the EPI. Donations are greatly appreciated.
