With young children and their families at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, Maria Szymanski wanted to provide a way to continue her interaction with UNF’s Preschool students while giving them something to do during this unusual time of social distancing. So, the First Lady started a virtual storytime, sharing spirited readings of classic stories, engaging lessons and fun activities for children to do at home.
EXPLORE – Empower, eXpand and Promote Learning Opportunities, Resources and Education in healthcare – is a program which provides high school students from underrepresented cultural backgrounds the opportunity to learn about careers in healthcare. In the past, the Brooks College of Health would host high school juniors during the summer, to introduce them to careers in healthcare. However, due to COVID-19 the university is unable to physically host these students on campus.
