Florida A&M University Opens the Rural Diversity Healtcare Center in Crestview

Historically Black Florida A&M University opened a new healthcare facility in the city of Crestview, Florida. The FAMU Rural Diversity Healthcare Center is focused on producing graduates who will be committed to serving the healthcare needs of people in rural areas of the Florida Panhandle.

The new center is located in the Alatex Building in downtown Crestview. The building opened in 1937 as a garment factory. In 2010, the title of the building was transferred to the university in an effort by the city to revitalize the downtown area.

Classes in the pharmaceutical sciences, as well as other healthcare disciplines, will be taught at the new center and students can also participate in classes through videoconferening with the main campus of the College of Pharmacy in Tallahassee.
