Twenty-one students from Delta High School attended a Health Careers Expo at Delta County Memorial Hospital on April 5 to learn about career opportunities in various health fields.
Representatives from the Delta County Memorial Hospital pharmacy, obstetrics and radiology departments, along with a paramedic with the Delta County Ambulance District and staff from the Delta County Health Department's WIC program, environmental health program and immunization program discussed work in their respective fields.
The staff also talked about their personal decisions in choosing their field of work, education requirements and opportunities for future employment.
The expo was the result of a collaborative effort between the hospital, Delta High School, Western Colorado Area Health Education and the Delta County Health Department. It is the goal of the group to make this an annual event for area high school students and possibly expand participation to other Delta County high schools.blog comments powered by Disqus
