Last month, several SCC students and faculty participated in the 14th Annual Health Careers Education Awareness Conference at UNC Asheville.
The event was hosted by the Mountain Area Health Education Center’s Department of Heath Careers and Diversity Education.
Students and faculty from 18 different schools gathered together to attend the Interactive Career Fair for a variety of informational sessions about health career opportunities.
The overall focus of the conference was developing a coordinated effort to heighten the knowledge and exposure of health career opportunities and diversity in the region, and also to improve awareness and understanding of health career opportunities for high school students and increase personal health through screening opportunities and education.
Approximately 40 students registered and had the opportunity to visit 39 Interactive Career Fair booths staffed by approximately 85 healthcare professionals and health science students.
