Health and Safety Career Expo at Logan High School Chieftain Center
Submitted by: Brice Frasure

In celebrating National Rural Health Day, Logan High School and Hocking Valley Community Hospital provided a healthcare career expo to highlight careers, skills, education, trades, and jobs associated with the healthcare profession. Representatives from Hopewell Health Centers and Health Recovery Services also were part of the Health and Safety related theme.

Presentation tables and representatives were set up in Chieftain Center to highlight aspects of what it takes to provide healthcare... from finance, dietary, nursing, housekeeping pharmacy, technology, radiology, medical labs and everything in between so that students know they don't have to become a doctor or a nurse to work in healthcare.

The career fair also included local first responders: Hocking County EMS, Logan Police Department, Hocking County Sheriff’s Office, State Highway Patrol, and 911 Dispatch Center who shared information on careers, experiences, and training programs.

Representatives from Hocking College specific training programs in the fields of medicine/nursing/health, and community safety were on hand to highlight specific programs and education opportunities that students might want to pursue.

The career expo targeted 11th grade students, as well as Health and career-related classes offered at Logan High School. During the visit, students visited 3 or more stations and completed a survey/feedback form from their consultations.

Attached are several pictures from the event that took place on Wednesday, November 16th.
