Professor back to work after medical emergency


An adjunct history professor at Florida A&M who was taken to the hospital late last week appears to be okay.

Danielle Buchanan, a public relations representative from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital said that there was no record of professor Jean Deese in the hospital’s patient system.

“He could have come into the hospital, wet to the emergency room and got treated,” she said.

The FAMU Department of History and Political Science said that Deese was fine, returned to the department the next day and will continue his regularly scheduled classes.

Last Thursday evening, a student, who a FAMU police officer believed to be Allen Copeland, called the paramedics after Deese nearly lost his balance during a lecture.

Students from the previous article said that Deese complained of minor pains prior to the incident and ignored them.
