This report contains the goals and explanations for the educational visit to Florida Atlantic University(FAU). The aim of this visit was to investigate the activities in the community that FAU faculty members were actively engaged. This visit was conducted in collaboration with the bilateral agreement between Tokushima University and Florida Atlantic University.
Florida Atlantic University Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing has facilities that foster community involvement and caring within Palm Beach County in Florida. The Community Health Center at West Gate was established and operated by FAU particularly for lower-income families who live in the vicinity. These families have little access to health care systems and their only means of seeking health care is through this center.
Another clinical practice setting is the Louis and Anne Green Memory & Wellness Center. It is a daycare facility for older persons particularly those with memory problems, and mental disturbances and/or dementia. The center was founded and is operated by FAU within the premises of the university.
The Head Lice Solutions is a health care initiative that focuses on the treatment of head lice basically among children in schools. The center is supported by a member of the FAU faculty, who is an expert on head lice as a school nurse.
The Light of The World Clinic provides health care to people in the area who have little access to care. A faculty member, who is also a nurse practitioner, runs a consulting room at this clinic.
These activities are intended to benefit communities within the area of responsibility at the vicinity of Florida Atlantic University. FAU has their goal which is to eliminate inequalities among those who suffer from health disadvantages, and address health issues when they arise in the community. The university promotes the combination of research with practice, and the project is also used as an educational facility for students. Overall, these functions create benefits for students’ and residents’ health and well-being.
