February, 2018 Newsletter

With the abundance of health careers to choose from, you could easily overwhelm yourself with research. Which careers align with your strengths? Your interests? The impact you want to make on the world or in your community? You can peruse course catalogues until you’re cross-eyed and write enough pros and cons lists to fill a notebook, but neither is a good substitute for learning about careers from the people who do them. From an inside look at medical illustration to clearing up misconceptions about social work, this month we're featuring interviews with professionals active in their fields and dedicated to their disciplines.
