ULM to Host Health Sciences Event

The University of Louisiana at Monroe is hosting a Health Sciences day for Non-Traditional students. The program is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 9, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the seventh floor of the ULM Library. The program is designed for students age 21 and older who are not currently enrolled in another college or university and who are interested in pursuing a degree in Health Sciences or Pharmacy at ULM.

Informative sessions about ULM's Health Sciences programs and admissions process for non-traditional students will be offered. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with faculty about curriculum requirements and what types of jobs are available with their degrees.

Lisa Miller, Director of Recruitment/Admissions at ULM said that due to the increased demand for certified health care professionals, the program was created to provide health science degree program information, admissions information, as well as financial aid information.

"Whether a person is completing a program started years ago, or just beginning a program, this event will provide the participants with the knowledge they need to begin their degree program as early as this Fall," Miller said.

Health Sciences Day will offer informative sessions about biology, clinical laboratory science, communicative disorders, dental hygiene, kinesiology, nursing, occupational therapy, and the College of Pharmacy and Toxicology.
