LA CROSSE, Wis. – Prospective students interested in a career in a health field and their family members are invited to learn more about Viterbo University’s pre-health programs and to meet local health care providers who will share their career experiences Saturday, Sept. 21.

The day’s schedule:

  • Noon Lunch in Viterbo’s cafeteria (Optional; pick up meal tickets in the Reinhart Center)
  • 12:45 p.m. Check-in at Reinhart Center
  • 1 p.m. Meet with local health care professionals who will share their perspectives on the variety of career paths in health science fields and answer questions about their career experiences
  • 2:15 p.m. Pre-health facilities tour. Guests are invited to explore lecture and lab spaces, learn more about research opportunities, and more.

“I invite students to join Viterbo science faculty and alumni working in health fields to explore how we can help them on their health career path,” said Michael Alfieri, Viterbo professor of biology. “I look forward to interacting with students to explore the opportunities available at Viterbo and discuss health careers with our professional panel that includes a physician, physician assistant, physical therapist, veterinarian, and pharmacist. The fact that all of the panel members are Viterbo alumni or faculty members will give attendees a unique opportunity to learn about heath care careers as well as what being a part of the Viterbo community means to them.”
