Our Healthcare and Science Stars of Tomorrow Career Symposium was a Great Success!
The event attracted more than 600 ethnically diverse students from more than 25 schools from Palm Beach, Okeechobee, and Martin Counties. The students came together with numerous healthcare professionals and academic institution representatives for career exploration through lectures, exhibits, live demonstrations, and multimedia sources. Our 32 exhibitors included professionals from FoundCare, Keiser University, Palm Beach State College, Nova Southeastern University, Florida Atlantic University, Kindred Hospital, Palms West Hospital, and The Scripps Research Institute, among others.
Attendees were energized by opening remarks by keynote speaker Dr. Cato Laurencin, MD, PhD, former Dean and Vice President of the University of Connecticut Health Science Center/School of Medicine. Students then proceeded through organized rotations and information sessions which allowed them to gain insight from professionals on pursuing careers in various fields in healthcare and the sciences. Participating professionals included, but was not limited to, pharmacists, physicians, nurses, nuclear medicine technologists, respiratory therapists, anesthesia assistants, epidemiologists, and biologists.
