MARQUETTE, Mich.— The Upper Peninsula Area Health Education Center will host a community forum focused on connecting students with opportunities in the health professions at Newberry High School. The event will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 9, in the Newberry High School cafeteria. It is free and open to the public.
The forum will provide community members, parents, students and health care professionals a chance to discuss ideas that would be helpful in encouraging students to pursue a career in health professions. With a statewide network of regional centers, Michigan AHEC prepares youth for health care careers, promotes clinical training opportunities for students in shortage areas and provides continuing education programs for health professionals. The Upper Peninsula Area Health Education Center is made possible by a partnership between Northern Michigan University and Wayne State University.
