WHEN: 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 21)

EVENT: Vendors from throughout Texas and the U.S. will be available to inform future professionals in the allied health sciences fields of occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, clinical laboratory science and molecular pathology about current employment opportunities. Demand in these fields is on the rise and TTUHSC School of Allied Health Sciences students will meet one-on-one with prospective employers at the event.

Last year, a number of employment matches were made through the TTUHSC School of Allied Health Sciences job fair and students received a better understanding of what career options would be available to them upon graduation. With 5 million providers in the United States, allied health professions account for approximately 60 percent of employment in the health care industry. The need for qualified allied health professionals is expected to rise significantly in the future.
