Greater Flint Health Coalition’s Flint Healthcare Partnership Success

Laura Bice is an Adult participant from the Greater Flint Health Coalition’s Flint Healthcare Employment Opportunities (FHEO) Program, a GST Michigan Works! Service Provider. Laura attended an Information Session to learn more about how she could re-enter the healthcare industry as she knows that providing care for others is her lifelong duty.

Laura followed the FHEO Program recruitment process and completed 120 hours of Life Skills and Healthcare Career Exploration Training. Laura shared that this training allowed her to renew and develop her professional skills and applied them to her Certified Nursing Assistant Assistant Training at Charter Healthcare Training Center.

In February 2020, Laura graduated from training and began searching for employment. She spent time working with the FHEO Program to practice interviewing, learn additional job search skills and prepare her resume for recruiters. In May 2020, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Laura was offered a position with Brookdale Senior Living. Laura accepted this position and plans to take her certification exam once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Congratulations Laura as you continue to reach your career goals!
