The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Communication Department, and the corporate and health communication major specifically, are sponsoring the 2nd annual Corporate Health Symposium Thursday, April 24th, 2014.

This is a half-day session with over 15 corporate, healthcare and non-profit speakers.  There will be a keynote address by our very own Dr. Christina Jones at 9:00 am, followed by two panel discussion sessions at 9:30 am and 11:00 am.  To end the day there will be a potluck lunch allowing students to network with the professionals from the panel discussions.

The keynote address, by Christina Jones, will be focused on the topic of hunger and the leading research that she has done.  Her address is titled “Voices of Hunger”.  A few of the panelists are Sue Konkel, Jefferson Public Health; Jerry Curtin, CEO, Standard Process in Palmyra; Amanda Krentz, UHS Coda Coordinator; Molly Wiederholt, Epic, Madison; Angie Alesci, Aurora Healthcare; and James Arnett, Meriter Hospital.

The purpose of this symposium is to give students more insight into potential careers in their chosen major and to gain exposure to the Whitewater community, specifically in corporate and health communication.

Thursday night there will also be a Zumba fundraiser to benefit the Whitewater Food Pantry.  The first session will run from 7:30-8:30 pm and the second session from 8:45-9:45.  The cost of Zumba is a $5 donation or 3 non-perishable food items.

All sessions, as well as Zumba will be held in UC 275 Ballroom.
