College Campus Safety; Election Roundup; First Coast Heart Walk

Aug 24, 2020


Colleges are back in session as COVID cases begin to rise on many campuses. Some students who are returning in person are concerned for their safety.    

  

We spoke with Kristie Gover, the dean of students at Jacksonville University, on how she’s planning to help bring students back to campus safely. 

Election Roundup: RNC; Kamala Harris 

 

As the presidential campaigns are moving in full force, night one of the RNC is tonight. Black Americans and Indian Americans alike are reflecting on Sen. Kamala Harris’s historic political career as the first woman of color to be on a presidential ticket. 

We spoke with Parvez Ahmed, who directs the office of Diversity and Inclusion on UNF’s campus, about Harris’s historic run.  

First Coast Heart Walk

The largest walk in Northeast Florida gets a twist this year. The First Coast Heart Walk will be completely virtual on Saturday, September 12.  We learned how you can participate from Scott Wooten, executive vice president and chief financial officer at Baptist Health, who is the 2020 First Coast American Heart Association Board Chair.
