LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Community College will host the 2019 Becoming Visible event, designed to increase racial and ethnic diversity in healthcare, especially among women of color in the Lansing metropolitan area.
Over 150 students are expected Friday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. – noon at the Health and Human Services Building on LCC’s Downtown Campus. LCC is working in conjunction with community partners including, Michigan State University, Sparrow and McLaren Health Care Systems, and the Lansing School District to offer a series of hands-on workshops and mentoring from current health professions students.
“We are excited to host Becoming Visible this year,” said Ronda Miller, LCC Dean of Student Affairs. “The event is designed to engage and inspire young women of color to actively participate, explore and consider the various health care programs available at LCC and MSU. Increasing the number of women of color into our local healthcare system not only provides sustainable employment opportunities but also positively impacts families and our community.”
Last year’s event was a huge success and provided inspiration to 236 young women of color from the Lansing School District.
