Gia Scaccabarrozzi - Academic Major: Public Health; Engagement Focus: Volunteerism and Service
Gia Scaccabarrozzi, a UNF Department of Public Health graduate from
Gainesville, Florida, has shown great dedication working with neonates and the
youth in the Jacksonville community through her service to a variety of
organizations including UF Health's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Love Your Melon,
and North Florida School of Special Education.
Gia was one of the founders for the Love Your Melon crew here on campus
and has worked with them for nearly two years assisting children with cancer
and their families. Gia believes that
the knowledge and skills she has learned in class and internship, have truly
prepared her for what she will be exposed to in the 'real world' and has
learned how to better accept, communicate, and give.
