Students that are interested in pursuing a major and occupation in the healthcare industry had an opportunity to network with peers from across the region and learn more about their career path.

HOT, Health Occupations Today, Expo was held on Friday, November 1, 2019 in Somerset, Kentucky.  The event is sponsored by the Southern Kentucky Area Health Education Center (AHEC), a nonprofit group on the mission to improve our communities by transforming health and healthcare through education. Southern Kentucky AHEC does this through events like HOT Expo, where they connect students to health careers, health professionals to communities, and communities to better health.

Knox County students were among students from throughout the Southern KY AHEC region, which stretches from Madison County down to the Tennessee border.
