Healthcare Career Expo School Registration 

The Workforce Investment Board of Southwest Missouri, Missouri Southern State University, healthcare providers and additional training providers are teaming up to help students learn what it takes to work in the healthcare industry.

Students will have the opportunity to explore their options, watch live demonstrations and even participate in hands-on activities.  This is a great opportunity for students to learn about different healthcare careers and ask questions to help them decide on a career and where to get the training for that career.
