This spring, the Ross Medical Education Center campus in Davison, Michigan was able to participate in their local Davison Health Fair. Community health fairs are always an exciting and beneficial experience for both staff and students as well as the community. It is a great opportunity to connect with healthcare professionals and citizens, allowing for future partnerships and career prospects as well as a chance to see neighbors and the needs that may exist in the local area.
For some of these reasons and to encourage healthy habits in the community, the local Davison Chamber of Commerce held their annual health fair from morning to afternoon on a Saturday. Their vision is to offer the community a chance to speak to various local services and vendors about wellness, health, education, and more. It is also an opportunity to share with community members about how they can actually become involved in improving the health of their city by pursuing a career in healthcare.
The Ross Medical Education Center Davison campus was fortunate to have a booth at the fair. From there, they were able to share information about their programs and some of the exciting things that Ross students are able to be a part of. Among those at the Ross booth were: Campus Director Frank Skinner, Assistant Campus Director of Education Michelle Lambaria-Robson, Assistant Campus Director of Admissions Kelly Linton, Lead Instructor for the Dental Assistant program Carol Hayes and Lead Instructor of the Pharmacy Technician program Kate O’Malley.
“This was a great event with a great turnout,” shared Campus Director Frank Skinner. “We hope to be involved with this again next year. The health fair is really about more than just health. It offers information on a variety of opportunities. The chamber is very active and organized and always puts on great events.”
