Richmond Campus Holds Fall Health and Career Fair

Nov 17, 2014

Visitors to the Richmond Campus‘s fall health and career fair found an abundance of resources available to help them improve their lives through a new job or better health. A number of local employers and health organizations participated in the event, including Pearl Interactive Network, Xerox, the Madison County Emergency Management Agency, Maxam Family Dental, Richmond Family Chiropractic, Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust for Life, Kentucky River Foothills, Baptist Health Richmond, and more.

Candace Ballinger, with Pearl Interactive Network, participated in the fair to spread the word that they are hiring customer service representatives for their call center located in Winchester, Kentucky. Ms. Ballinger said that the company’s call center representatives provide information regarding health coverage to customers of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Her employees have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of insurance and medical terminology. She feels that working in the call center offers students in the medical programs a great opportunity to gain experience while in school. 

Baptist Health Richmond shared both employment opportunities and wellness information at their two booths. Carolyn Hacker, chief dietician at Baptist Health, said that it is vital to educate the public about diabetes prevention. While talking with visitors at the fair, she stressed the importance of reading food labels and explained how to create a healthy, balanced plate of food. “Pre-diabetes has reached epidemic levels now, and looking at the area that we live in, those are the counties that have the high numbers of diabetes,” she explained.
