Health Sciences to Hold Professional School Fair
In conjunction with its annual Research Day, the Freed-Hardeman University School of Sciences and Mathematics will hold its first Professional School Fair for the health sciences April 20 in the lobby of the Crews-Colbert Activity Center from 9 a.m. until noon.
The school has conducted a research day for several years. Research Day allows students in the School of Sciences and Mathematics to present their research to their peers and professors. The professors hope this accompanying first Professional School Fair will also become a yearly tradition.
At the fair, FHU students will have the opportunity to talk to representatives from various health science programs and about the schools that can potentially help them be accepted into these programs. Health arts students from other local universities such as Union University, Lane University, Bethel University and the University of Memphis at Lambuth have also been invited to the fair.
Dwina Willis, FHU associate professor of Bible and biology, has been involved in preparing for the fair. In addition to helping students, she sees the event as, “an opportunity for these schools to come to our campus and get to know FHU and our students better.”
Representatives from the following programs will be in attendance: Harding University’s physician assistant, physical therapy and pharmacy programs; Lipscomb University’s pharmacy program; Christian Brothers University physician assistant program; Union University’s graduate nursing program; University of Louisville’s dental school; Trevecca Nazarene University’s physician assistant program; Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine; uniform military services and Kaplan Review classes.
