Healthcare 360 is an annual event organized by the Portage Economic Development Corporation (EDC) in partnership with Portage Township Schools and healthcare providers such as NorthShore. Students witnessed and learned about jobs in optometry, pharmacy, nursing, mental health, and more.
“Students were introduced to 15 different careers during this event,” said Jeff Smith, Lake Station NorthShore Site Director. “We feel it’s important to open their eyes to the fact that there are so many careers within healthcare. It’s not just doctors and nurses.”
The students talked with NorthShore experts about how to navigate finding a career in healthcare, what the day-to-day looks like, and how each job plays an important role in making a difference in the community.
With futures full of possibilities, Portage High School students explored careers in healthcare in the first part of an event called Healthcare 360.
