"Involvement and participation in UHE consistently helps me to be updated and informed on local healthcare issues as they relate to education and career development," says Cory. "As a liaison between industry practitioners and students entering the field, involvement with UHE helps to bring back to the classroom current trends, needs and expectations as we develop our students in an academic setting. This has a huge impact on their learning and overall competencies, which allows for more qualified students entering the industry at a higher performance level, making immediate contributions. Additionally, UHE helps develop the contacts, networking possibilities and relationships to best guide, advise and inform our students."
