How do I prepare for the Health Professions Expo?
Students planning to attend the 2023 Health Expo on February 28 will have an opportunity to prepare for the event with a career development coordinator in the spring. Details on this event will be announced at the start of the spring semester.
This event, sponsored by the pre-health ambassadors and Alpha Epsilon Delta Honor Society, will help students understand what to wear, what to bring and what type of questions are appropriate for this style of event. Dana Parker, career development coordinator for the College of Health and Human Sciences will lead the event. Students will also have a chance to do some mock networking activities and ask any questions they have about the event.
Though registration is not required, students planning to attend the professional development event are asked to fill out this questionnaire to make sure a majority of topics and questions are answered during the session. Those wanting to attend the event but have a schedule conflict should reach out to Dana Parker, who can share a recording from the event.
