Richland College offering a broad view of healthcare occupations, March 26-29

According to the 2010-11 Edition Occupational Outlook Handbook published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor, of the 20 fastest growing occupations in the economy half are related to healthcare. Additionally, about 26 percent of all new jobs created in this nation will be in the healthcare and social assistance industry, creating 4 million new jobs.

With this growth comes a greater need for training and education in health science fields.
