CEHHS participates in UM-Dearborn Spring Open House
Students learned about CEHHS degree programs in Education and Health and Human Services. Two CEHHS faculty taught simulated college classes.
DEARBORN, MI. - The UM-Dearborn Open House on Saturday, April 22, 2017, was a whirling success! The spinning wheel always draws in a crowd of prospective first-year and transfer students as they spin the wheel to win a prize. Students learned about CEHHS degree programs in Education and Health and Human Services from advisors Lindsey Tarrant and Jonathan Larson. Health Professions Advisor Tahnee Prokopow was inundated with students interested in a variety of health professions and professional school admission requirements.
Ten simulated college classes were offered at the Open House. Two CEHHS faculty taught classes including Dr. Natalie Sampson, For the Health of It, and Dr. Martha Adler, I Can Read with My Eyes Shut: Deconstructing Learning to Read. Dr. Sampson led an exciting class exploring the role of public health in addressing some of society's greatest challenges ranging from chronic disease management to protecting residents during oil spills. Dr. Adler used the Dr. Seuss book to engage students through interactive learning experiences to explore the development of reading comprehension.
Dr. Patricia Wren, the new Department Chair of Health and Human Services, and Dr. Susan Everett, Department Chair of Education, met throughout the day with prospective students and their families, answering questions about the full range of academic programs, course requirements, and career options that await students in CEHHS.
Lindsey Tarrant led the CEHHS informational session giving an overview of the undergraduate degree programs and certificates. She shared resources and information about important student support services such as prospective student advising.
CEHHS faculty and staff look forward to seeing many of the attendees beginning their experiences at UM-Dearborn in the summer and fall.
Jonathan Larson, academic advisor, gave information to prospective students and their parents about all programs offered by CEHHS.
