Richland Two families are invited to learn about the variety of the district’s health science related programs and the MED Two program at the first annual MED Two Expo from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, September 12 at the R2i2 Conference Conference.
The MED Two Expo will include a Healthcare Career Fair, Healthcare Education Fair, Richland Two Health Science/MED Two Showcase and Parent/Student Information Sessions. The Expo will heighten awareness with regards to the variety of healthcare career options, the diversity of education pathways, and the numerous academic healthcare related programs and opportunities available in Richland Two.
“We want students to not only think about the traditional healthcare careers, but to also be aware of careers that require minimal education, provide a livable wage and above, have above average job growth and positive job satisfaction,” said MED Two Program Coordinator Lorie McDuffie.
Through the MED Two experience, students have the opportunity to find their passion and acquire knowledge to help make informed decisions regarding their career path. MED Two program is an after school extension program that provides healthcare related opportunities for middle and high school students. Opportunities may include career exploration, education exploration, healthcare seminars, field studies and/or skills certification. MED Two is one component of Richland Two's multi-faceted healthcare related offerings.
