In honor of our COPH's 25th (Silver) Anniversary, we hope to have a large contingent of COPH faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends join our COPH 25th Anniversary Silver Stars Wellness Walkers team at the American Heart Association Tampa Bay “Start Heart Walk” at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Nov 14th at 9am!
To show COPH's collective support of the American Heart Association's important public health mission to “Build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke”.
Why contribute? The American Heart Association serves the public through the key areas of research, patient care, advocacy, health education, and CPR training. In order to provide all these services, this non profit organization relies upon contributions from the public. As public health professionals and employees at COPH, this is a wonderful way in which we can contribute to a worthy cause.
Will our donated dollars come back to benefit us here at COPH? YES!
Many of our COPH faculty and students have received funding through AHA grants and presented at AHA conferences. In addition, many of the health education materials that we have used for our USF wellness program and USF Health Service Corps student service events have been provided by our local American Heart Association affiliate.
How can I participate in (or contribute to) the COPH 25th Anniversary Silver Stars Wellness Walkers team at the Nov. 14th Tampa Bay Start! Heart Walk at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa?
