TSS hosts Medicine Career Night
On March 28th teens, board members and representatives of various careers in the medical field shared an evening of pizza, conversation and questions. Before the evening began, the students were given a tour of the Health Clinic by Maria Carmen Reyes, Outreach/Events Coordinator at SVHC, who also helped coordinate the evening with Francisca Fifis and Jennifer Blackwood. The group learned about some of the career opportunities available and what is needed to take advantage of them.


This was the third Career Night held, and at each of the three, the representatives from the various careers have shared a common theme with the teens “when you find something that you are interested in, pursue it, and don’t give up.” They also stressed the importance of not feeling that you are alone in your pursuit. There are mentors who will help you, and you shouldn’t be reluctant to ask for that help.

Teen Services was fortunate to have representatives from various areas of the medical field, from Eduardo Sanchez a medical interpreter, to Joe Gilmore a paramedic, Victoria Roeher a marriage and family therapist, to nurses and RNs: Jennifer Darby, Carrie Brophy and Ingrid Barry.
