Over 250 area high school students are signed up to participate in John A. Logan College’s Healthcare and Public Service Day on Thursday, February 16. Organizers have a day of sessions designed to expose students to career opportunities in healthcare and public service. The event begins with a welcome session in the O’Neil Auditorium at 9 AM. Students can then pick five sessions to attend.

“We have designed the sessions to showcase career opportunities and the state-of-the-art facilities and outstanding instructors we have in each of these programs.,” said Manager of Student Life and Recruitment April Martinez. “We hope that seeing a hands-on demonstration will capture a student’s interest and that they will see the career opportunities right here in southern Illinois.”

Students can visit various programs Thursday, including cosmetology, criminal justice, dental assisting, diagnostic medical sonography, early childhood education, emergency medical services, medical assisting, medical lab technician, nursing, occupational therapy, biomedical electronics, and allied health admissions.
