The programs highlighted the stories of two RWHC partners, sharing guidance for students, teachers and parents about important facets of these careers and helping young people see into the daily lives of pharmacy and nursing work.

Pharmacy featured Cindy Kissack, Director of Pharmacy at St. Clare’s Hospital in Baraboo and RWHC Pharmacy Roundtable member: Pharmacist: More Than Just Counting Pills

Men in Nursing featured Jeremiah Galvan, RN, Clinical Manager of Critical Care, Gundersen Health System and member of RWHC Men in Nursing Roundtable. Being A Nurse: Caring Beyond the Bedside

These programs, along with many other career programs that reach over 140,000 Wisconsin students each year are available at http://www.studentcareerinfo.com/ SLN, a 501(c)3 nonprofit serves as a bridge to identify and involve Wisconsin experts and leaders with the Wisconsin educational system by providing live, interactive web conferencing and digitally stored video discussions on topics that provide information and insight on careers and life challenges for students, educators and parents. The program is free to schools.
