Health Speaker Series

Students interested in pursuing careers in healthcare have an opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from members of the area medical community participating in a new Health Speaker Series.

The next Health Speaker Series is Thursday, February 27, at 6:00 pm in Huber Auditorium at Eastern Oregon University. The speaker is Chris Butterworth, MS, SLP-CC, Speech and Language Pathologist at Grande Ronde Hospital.

Organizers of the speaker series believe there is a great benefit for students and the community to meet healthcare providers in a setting other than a doctor’s office or hospital. It also gives students a chance to learn what a future in healthcare might hold for them.

The Health Speaker Series will continue through winter and spring term with one presentation each month. Information on upcoming speakers at EOU is available at www.eou.edu/prepro or by contacting Kimberly Mueller, EOU’s pre-professional health liaison at 541-962-3070.
