VA Western New York Healthcare System Shows Career Opportunities to Students

Children of VA employees are scheduled to visit their place of employment, VA Western New York Healthcare System, 3495 Bailey Avenue, on Thursday, April 23 for a full day of learning about the wide variety of health care careers in a medical center.  The annual observance of Take Our Children to Work Day is for students in grade 6 through 11, who will take part in tours and shadowing experiences that will introduce them to career fields such as nursing, engineering trades, information systems, physical therapy, dental, and administration.

 The day begins at 8:15 a.m. in Freedom Hall, room 301.  The structured day of activities allows students to have a firsthand view of the many career opportunities in a health care setting. “It’s a great introduction to occupations in health care for students,” stated Medical Center Director Brian Stiller. “By having them observe the wide range of careers we have in the medical center, we hope to spark an interest for a future path in health care.”
