The Council is looking for alumni to visit CHP classes during Alumni Week Feb. 21 – Feb. 25, 2005. (Homecoming is Feb. 26.) Volunteers can lecture on a topic of their choice or one suggested by an instructor. They also have the option to just visit and talk about their work.
“This is the third year we’ve invited alumni to visit classes,” says Nancy Dillon, Alumni Council president. “It’s so important for students to feel a connection with people in the careers they’re preparing for. As an alumnus, you get a renewed energy talking to young people who are getting ready to enter your world.”
For more information or to volunteer, contact Dillon at email@example.com, or Yvonne King, administrative assistant to the dean, at (313) 993-1208.

The awards are presented at the spring Honors Convocation to outstanding graduates from each of these programs: heath services administration/management, nurse anesthesia, nursing physician assistant and allied health.
