Career Day with Rebecca Reyna

Career Day at the Cook Library Center is always a great opportunity for youth to learn about different options for the future. Careers in the health industry have been a hot topic lately, so it was a perfect time for Rebecca Reyna, a Prenatal Educator at Spectrum Health, to come in and talk with students about what she does.

Rebecca talked with the students about health and nutrition, along with what it's like to work in the field. Students got a chance to hear about nursing careers, and how choosing these careers is a commitment to help others stay healthy. The session ended with a great Q&A session, where students got the chance to get real answers from a health-care professional.

To go along with the talk about health and nutrition, the YMCA was there to provide a healthy snack. Everyone worked together to make yogurt smoothies and got first hand experience making healthy choices!
