A day in the life: Yoga and Meditation Teacher, presented by HealthForce Minnesota
February 10, 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
The yoga industry is growing and as it grows, so do the opportunities for employment. When most people think of yoga as a profession, their minds immediately jump to yoga teachers and studio owners. Although these can certainly be viable pathways to earning a living through yoga, they are not the only ways.
A day in the life: Massage Therapist, presented by HealthForce Minnesota
February 11, 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
The demand for alternative therapies is growing and so do the opportunities for employment. One career in high demand is massage therapy. With a focus on general well-being and natural healing, massage therapy sessions are often a source of relaxation or pain relief for many. Massage therapists are versatile because they are often trained in several massage modalities as well as reflexology techniques, Shiatsu and bodywork. Their unique expertise makes them an integral part of the health care field. What does a massage therapist do? Come learn about what it is like to live a day in the life of a massage therapist.
Virtual Anesthesia Career Event - External Registration Required, presented by Mayo Clinic Career Awareness
February 27, 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
Are you interested in a career as either a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) or a Anesthesiologists? If so, then please join us on Saturday, February 27, 2021.
During this virtual event, you will be provided with an introduction to Anesthesia and have the opportunity to ask professionals questions. Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) are advanced practice registered nurses with doctoral education. Anesthesiologists are physicians with doctoral education. These professions specialize in perioperative care, developing anesthetic plans, and the administration of anesthetics. Both CRNAs and Anesthesiologists enjoy a high degree of autonomy and professional respect. CRNAs and Anesthesiologists provide anesthetics to patients in a practice setting, and for surgery and a variation of procedures. We believe that certified nurse anesthetists and Anesthesiologists form an integral part of the total health care system by virtue of advanced scientific knowledge and competency in technical skills.
We are excited to get these great opportunities for students, led by industry professionals, into southeast Minnesota schools. Let me know if you would like to have access to these events!
