Tue, 10/22/2002 - 8:00pm -- tim

Thinking about changing careers? Interested in learning more about the health care field? If so, the Champlain Valley Health Careers Showcase has just the information you need to get started.
Scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 13, from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Champlain Mill in Winooski, this free event will offer information about dozens of health occupations, many of which are currently experiencing staffing shortages. Employers, educators, health care workers, and representatives of professional organizations will be on hand to discuss the requirements for entering various health care careers and the rewards and challenges of working in this growing field.
The event will feature two panel discussions, "Employment Opportunities & the Employee Perspective," at 2 p.m. and again at 5 p.m., and "Education, the Student Perspective & Financial Aid," at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Exhibits will cover fields such as nursing, dental hygiene, respiratory therapy, medical technology, radiology, medical records, and alternative medicine.
The showcase is sponsored by the Champlain Valley Area Health Education Center, Fletcher Allen Health Care, the University of Vermont, Vermont Adult Learning, and the Vermont Student Assistance Corp. For more information, call 1-800-642-3177 or visit www.vsac.org.
