Fulton County Health Career Opportunities

Fulton County High School students have a new opportunity to look at health careers.  Through a series of planned experiences, local partners are putting together a broad exposure to health careers at the local and regional level.  The programming will be designed to help young people “connect the dots” between school and career.

A key part of this effort involves providing more opportunities for young people to explore careers.  Through engagement with local and regional health care providers, students have opportunities to be exposed to new things.  Graham Health System in partnership with SIU School of Medicine, UI College of Medicine Peoria, Spoon River College, and University of Illinois Extension are working together to provide learning opportunities for high school youth. Partners will be present during school registration to answer questions about the program. 

An application for participation in the program can be found on the University of Illinois Extension website. The application is also available online and must be completed by March 31, 2017. The cost to participate in the program is $25.  You can obtain a registration packet herehttp://web.extension.illinois.edu/fmpt/downloads/69114.pdf.   For more information, contact Melanie Ewalt, Human Resources Graham Health Systems at mewalt@grahamhospital.org.

“On Time, All Day, Every day!”  Coming to school “on time, all day and everyday” teaches our young people…even the tiniest among us…discipline, responsibility and work ethic.  All of these qualities are necessary as we prepare these students for college and career.  The General State aid we receive from the government to buy supplies and materials for our classrooms depends on the number of students who regularly attend school.   Children need parents and guardians to encourage them to be here.  Help us help them to be “On Time, ALL Day, Every day!”
