Alumni Spotlight

During the 1st quarter of 2013, the Communications Committee of the HPA-APG implemented the "Alumni Spotlight," a series of discussions with HPA alumni from all facets of healthcare. The discussions include predetermined questions regarding career progression, helpful HPA courses, current issues within the healthcare industry and advice for students and recent grads. The discussion is then posted to the HPA-APG LinkedIn page and members of the page are invited to ask the alumnus questions. The goal of the "Alumni Spotlight" is to connect members to other HPA alumni, as well as generate discussions about various topics within healthcare.
