Health Careers Awareness Week

November 10-14, 2008, is Health Careers Awareness Week in Pennsylvania. Throughout the week, the local PA CareerLink office and Fulton County Medical Center will be teaming up to visit the three local school districts in an effort to promote healthcare careers. The two groups have been working on this endeavor since 2004 when Gov. Rendell created the Pennsylvania Center for Health Careers as an initiative of the Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board.

Monday, November 10, staff members will be at Southern Fulton High School; Thursday, November 13 at Forbes Road and Friday, November 14, at Central Fulton. The two groups will be speaking to seventh and eighth-graders.
