East Central College will host Information Sessions on careers in the health field at three locations this month.  Individuals who want to learn more about training programs related to health care as well as the admissions process are encouraged to attend a session in Union, Washington or Rolla.


The first session will be held at ECC’s main campus in Union on Wednesday, November 14, from noon to 1 p.m.  The Missouri Career Center in Washington will be the site of the next gathering on Thursday, November 15, from 10 to 11 a.m.  On Friday, November 16, a session will be held at ECC in Rolla from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.


Sarah Havens, coordinator of the Health Career s Transition program at ECC, noted that each session is designed to introduce potential students to the opportunities available in the health care and services industry.  Career exploration and an individual skills assessment will be discussed.


“Through the Missouri Health WINs grant, East Central is able to help students develop the math, reading and writing skills needed to be successful in the health care industry,” Havens said. “Through this program we also want to acquaint students with health care organizations and professionals in the field so they have an understanding of what is required to be successful prior to even starting classes.”  Havens stated that tuition waivers may be available to some students through the MoHealthWINs grant.   


Since space is limited at each session, people wanting to attend should contact Havens at 636-584-6659 or .
