LANHAM, Md. – May 4, 2021 – Family Choice Healthcare, which has been providing quality non-medical home healthcare for more than 20 years, was thrilled to recently sponsor Gathertown, an interactive, virtual event that allowed Prince George’s County students to learn about the challenging transition from high school to college.
Hosted by the Biomedical Mentorship Program, Gathertown enabled students to “walk around” while interacting with virtual social tables, informational posters and games. During the Talking Table sessions, students heard from mentors on key topics such as the college application process, financial aid, choosing the best school for their needs, managing finances at school and getting the most out of the college experience. Participants also had networking opportunities with more than 30 local healthcare and STEM professionals in the DMV area.
“We strongly believe in supporting the communities we serve and that begins with educating our future leaders. Moving on from high school to college is stressful and confusing both for students and their parents, and this event truly answered a lot of questions, put minds at ease and steered participants in the right direction for a successful step into higher education,” said Family Choice Healthcare Founding President & CEO Steve Taylor. Kym Taylor, VP, Marketing and Strategic Solutions for Family Choice Healthcare, serves as the Vice President of the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Health and Biosciences Advisory Committee.
“The Gathertown event we held for the end-of-the-year celebration for our mentoring program was a hit! It was the first time all year that the group was able to mingle and socialize in a group space. The PGCPS Biomedical Sciences Advisory Committee would like to sincerely thank Family Choice Healthcare for sponsoring the event,” said Committee Chair Jamie Hill-Daniel MD.
