Past Event Highlights

Saginaw Valley State University Employment Fair

Saginaw Valley State University Employment Fair

TCHP had the opportunity to attend their first college employment fair! We had the opportunity to share information about our 20 partnering organizations and share information about the Thumb! We highlighted that the Thumb is "more than just a paycheck" when it comes to culture and work environment of all of our partnering organizations. Over the course of the day we met with 45 students ranging from students in the nursing program, marketing, and psychology programs at SVSU. Many of the students were happy to hear we had opportunities for all of them across the Thumb.

Healthcare Career Guest Speakers

During the Fall 2021, the Thumb Community Health Partnership educated the students in the Health Science Programs at each of the four counties tech centers about different careers that are available in the Thumb. 16 different guest speakers came to talk to the students about their careers. A few careers students learned about included: Respiratory Therapy, Social Work, Health Education, & Emergency Preparedness Coordinator careers. Over 120 students were able to participate and learn about the many opportunities available right here in the Thumb!

Career Day- Huron ISD

  TCHP gave students the opportunity to “Think Outside the Bowl” when it comes to choosing a career option in the health and human service field.  183 students over the course of the day had an opportunity to learn about the many career opportunities that are available right here in the Thumb. They completed a short 5 question survey in which they indicated the career paths they were interested.  They also were asked if they planned on coming back or staying in Huron County. Of the 183 responses, 62 students had an interest in health care. Of the respondents, 36% of the students said they would move back or stay in Huron County; while 46% said maybe. As TCHP moves forward with workforce development activities, we hope to impact the 46% of students that are unsure about coming back to the area by highlighting the endless opportunities that are available right in their own community!

“Think outside the bowl when it comes to healthcare careers”

Sanitarians: An investigator of health and safety within an environment.  This may be the workplace, food preparation facilities, industrial producers, or even the general environment. This sector of employment is on the rise and has a lot of room for growth.
