Health Care Professional Seminar

by Chris Cato

Helping to keep children from heading to court later, by reaching out to them now. That's the reason behind a special Health Professional Seminar in Nacogdoches Saturday.

Organizers of the seminar said they are trying to show children what choices they have in life by looking at different professions in the health field. They say it's all in an attempt to reach out to the young members of the African American community.

C.L. King, Pastor at Bethel Temple Church said, "they're trying to get young folks headed in the right direction at an early age, they're trying to steer them into very good professions."

The seminar featured talks by African Americans in the health care field, highlighting jobs ranging from nurses, to doctors, to lab technicians.

The seminar is an annual event hosted by members of the NAACP and Nacogdoches District Judge Campbell Cox during Black History Month. Bethel Temple Church hosted the event this year and Pastor King says he will now surly be involved in future seminars.
