There was much fun on the eld, Aug. 13, as Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida (HCN) celebrated National Health Center Week with a special Family Field Day at Marion E. Fether Medical Center. The celebration highlighted the signi cant contributions made by National Health Centers in communities across the United States. The event was free and open to the public. Kids of all ages enjoyed traditional eld day events such as gunny sack races, hula hoops, jump ropes, among other activities as well as a variety of information booths and free health screenings provided by HCN and other local agencies. One of 1,128 Federally Quali ed Health Centers, HCN was founded in 1977 to serve Immokalee's migrant farm workers and rural poor. Today, the network has grown to a $35 million network with 330 employees and more than 40 providers serving 14 locations throughout Collier County. Last year, HCN served 39,000 individuals, including 27,000 children, making it the largest single provider of local pediatric care, caring for nearly half the children in Collier County. By providing these families with a "patient centered home," HCN providers are able to follow their patients, ensure necessary treatment and provide preventative education that actually reduces long-term health care costs. HCN does this with a staff of 330, including more than 40 providers serving 14 locations throughout Collier County including the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. Vital partnerships with academic and philanthropic partners allow HCN to expand its reach thanks to medical students and staff from Florida State University College of Medicine and the University of Florida College of Dentistry.

Alejandro "Pelon" Mendoza, who has returned for his second year to the nationally ranked Georgia Perimeter College met up with his buddy from Immokalee High School AJ Hernandez Jr., who just started at Monroe College in Rochester, NY, for the rst game of the year for both teams. Alejandro's and GPC, came up on top with a 2-0 win. When we started the Soccer Pit Cobras youth soccer in Immokalee eight years ago we knew that the bene ts would come. Both of these young men are product of the program and Immokalee High School soccer. We have always encouraged the aca demics because without them there is no next step after high school. Alejandro, AJ, Jesus Velazco, Pepe Guzman, Daniel Guz man, Rogelio Guzman and Eric Leon, ar e our ambassadors to the college scene, an d we hope that our other players take not e that this is not impossible. All it takes is th e commitment in their school work and th e persistence to want to be at the next level. I know our parents want that for their son s and daughters. It is the rst time in twent y one years that two of our boys faced eac h other in a college soccer match. Today, I' m on cloud nine.

Masthead photo courtesy of Waddy Thompson Serving Immokalee, Ave Maria and Eastern Collier County by Maribel De ArmasThe beginning of a new school year is a great time to remind everyone of the plethora of resources available on Collier County Public Schools’ (CCPS) website ( Whether you are a student, parent, community member, or CCPS employee, our website is really a one-stop shop for just about anything you need to know about the school district. If you don’t have a computer at home, check out the website on a smartphone, on a computer at your local library, or on a computer that may be available at your child’s school. On the homepage of the website, you’ll nd some great information right at your ngertips. We like to use the space to share our exciting news. You’ll see “Latest Events” where you’ll nd photo galleries and videos of the latest activities. Under “Latest News,” you’ll see a scrolling repository of student achievements, school successes, and overall good news. And among other areas on the homepage, you’ll also see the “Webisodes” area where the latest shows from The Education Channel are posted. Here are just a few additional important resources you might nd useful on the district website. Late Bus Notices There’s an easy way to learn if your child’s bus is delayed on the trip home. Late bus notices are posted, as needed, on the homepage of the district website. Look for the school bus “Late Bus Notice” icon on the page. It appears any afternoon that a school bus is running more than a half hour behind schedule. Just click on the icon to nd out if, by chance, your child’s bus is running late. Hurricane/Emergency Resources While the tropics seem to be taking it easy on us this year, we want to make sure you are aware of the various ways, in addition to the school district website, to receive up-to-date and accurate information if a hurricane or other emergency happens to affect school operations.  Emergency Information Hotline – call 1-888-994-NEWS (6397) for toll-free updates in English, Spanish, and Creole.  The Education Channel – tune in to Comcast, cable 99, for any updated emergency information.  School Messenger – receive automated phone calls sent directly to your phone with school closing and re-opening information.  Blast Emails – subscribers of iNews will receive emergency information updates. Not a subscriber? Visit www.collierschools. com and click on the “Send us your email address” icon on the homepage.

Students First When someone catches sight of a panther or black bear and reports it to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the agency’s biologists may use that sighting to help research and manage those species. Already, the public’s willingness to report where they see panthers and black bears in Florida is having a positive impact on what is known about where these large mammals live and reproduce in the state. Based on two years of online public reporting of panther sightings and nearly one year of online reports of bear sightings, biologists know more about what areas of Florida provide viable habitat for these species. A total of 1,537 Florida panther sightings were reported as of June 2014, of which 275 have been veri ed as panthers based on photos of the animal or its footprints. This includes the rst veri cation of a panther sighted near the Green Swamp north of Interstate 4 in central Florida. Primarily, the veri ed panther sightings are in southwest Florida. There also were a total of 2,257 Florida black bear sighting reports as of June 2014, with more than 500 of those reports containing uploaded photographs. Sightings of bears were reported in 59 of the state’s 67 counties. The FWC continues collection of panther sightings at, and bear sightings at Here people can nd information about the animals, including how to identify them, what to do or not do if they see one, and a Google map making it easy to pinpoint the sighting location. “Someone’s excitement about seeing a Florida panther or black bear may translate into important scienti c information if that sighting is reported to the FWC,” said Carol Knox, the FWC’s Imperiled Species Management section leader. “The FWC is pleased that so many people are making the effort to be citizen scientists and sharing their sightings of panthers and bears. By doing so, the y are contributing to conservation of Florida’s largest land mammals.” Soon, cooler weather will be on the wa y and more people will be resuming their outdoor pursuits. “We hope people going outdoors to hunt, hike or pursue other recreational activities remember to share their bear sightings with us, particularly if it is a mother bear with cubs,” said FWC bear biologist Brian Scheick.

August 26, 2014 – FORT MYERS, FLA. – SWFL Children’s Charities Inc., organizer of the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, presented a generous gift of $100,000 to the School of Health Professions at Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). The gift, which will directly bene t the college by providing new technology and student scholarships, was presented by SWFL Children’s Charities trustees and event co-chairs Elaine Hawkins and Dorothy Fitzgerald from the nonpro t organization on Aug. 7. “The FSW Foundation is committed to strengthening educational programs that support our local economy by soliciting inv estment opportunities for new technology that better prepare our graduates,” said Dr. Louis J. Traina, vice president of Institutional A dvancement at FSW. “It’s the support from local foundations like the SWFL Children’s Charities that makes it all possible.” “Students who graduate from the School of Health Professions are part of the driving force of our local economy, not only providing vital services to the public but choosing to live and raise families here in Southwest Florida,” said Dr. Jeff Allbritten, president of FSW. “With this generous gift from the SWFL Children’s Charities, we will continue to ensure that graduates are highly-skilled w hen they step foot into this growing job market.” The gift came at an opportune moment as FSW invests in new technology to keep nursing education cutting edge while also satisfying recent state legislation that permits an increase in the total clinical training that can be achieved through simulation, from 25 to 50 percent. “We like to give to organizations that make a difference in our community,” said Hawkins. “Seeing the enthusiasm for the new technology and how it bene ts our community is what motivates the Wine Fest trustees to keep giving year after year.” The FSW School of Health Professions offers two bachelor’s degrees, 11 associate’s degrees, and six certi cate programs, preparing local students with the credentials to work in nearly every health-related eld. Dr. Marie Collins, dean of the School of Health Professions, said that the gift from SWFL Children’s Charities will support nursing, respiratory care and dental hygiene clinical education in the areas of pediatric and obstetric care. The college will speci cally use the gift to invest in:  Scholarships for nursing, respiratory care and dental hygiene students  A birthing mother and newborn simulator  A pediatric simulator  A mechanical ventilator for skills practice on pediatric patients  An panograph x-ray machine for pediatric patients treated at the Dental Hygiene Clinic “Clinical and lab fees are necessary to support the complex needs of health professions programs. These fees quickly add up. Scholarships are critical for our students so they can focus less on the nancial aspects and focus more on obtaining the highest level of clinical competency and experiences.” said Collins. According to Dr. Collins, simulations at FSW ensure that every student receives an equal and consistent educational experience. “Through the use of simulation education, we can guarantee that every student has equal experiences with medical scenarios such as complications which may occur during and immediately after birth. These simulated scenarios may be repeated over and over again to allow students to gain the skills and con dence needed for optimal real world patient care,” said Collins. “We all bene t from healthcare and education,” added Fitzgerald. “They are the fundamentals of any great community.” Over the last six years, SWFL Children’s Charities has raised more than $11.6 million in donations to bene t only three local charities serving children: The Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, the Music Therapy Program at Florida Gulf Coast University, and the Pediatric Nursing Program at Florida SouthWestern State College.

School Briefs The rst year in college is an exciting time for students. For younger students, it may be their rst time living away from home, cooking and cleaning for themselves, and even doing their own laundry, while nontraditional students may be the caregivers to their own families. Paired with the responsibility of attending classes, completing schoolwork, studying and possibly even working a partor fulltime job, the rst year in college can be quite challenging. This is why the First Year in College (FYE) Cornerstone Experience was created at Florida SouthWestern State College. The class provides a foundation for college success for rst-time students, and the study and life skills students acquire helps them throughout their college years. FYE covers topics such as time and money management, stud y skills, thinking critically and creatively, active listening, diversity, questioning established ideas and creating new ideas, and using information to solve problems. Students also learn more about their individual personalities and discover their personal strengths and skills. FYE students participate in a variety of projects, including Go Picture Scribe (GPS). GPS allows students to learn more about their FSW campus and what it has to offer, its staff and faculty, and student clubs. Students are encouraged to participate in campus events and workshops, and to take advantage of campus resources all while photographing their experiences. At the end of the program, students often see improvements in their writing and communication skills. They become more comfortable working with their peers and they learn how to work in a team, using their strengths and allowing others to help them in areas they may not be as strong. They also become more con dent talking to their professors about concerns they may have in their classes, and they have a greater understanding of their learning styles. Similar programs are offered at most major colleges, and beginning this fall, the FYE Cornerstone Experience will be mandatory for all rst year college students attending FSW. The Hendry/Glades Center welcomes back all students, new and returning, for the start of another exciting school year. Dr. Duke DiPo is the Academic Service Coordinator and professor of the Cornerstone Experience at the Florida SouthWestern State College Hendry/Glades Center. A cornerstone experience for rst time students Road Watch
