By Griffin Hospital on 12/9/2014

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

DERBY, CT (Dec. 9, 2014) – Griffin Hospital’s School of Allied Health Careers and The Workplace will hold informational sessions on Wed., Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the school, 300 Seymour Ave., Derby, to explain student assistance programs, including free tuition to the school through the Health Careers Opportunity Grant.

The School of Allied Health Careers was one of the first hospital-based schools of its kind to be authorized by the Connecticut Department of Higher Education and offers training, education, and certification for Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Patient Care Technician (PCT) and Phlebotomy. Classes are taught by certified instructors in the Griffin Hospital Medical Building, located at 300 Seymour Avenue in Derby.

The school’s winter semester starts in January.

The Health Careers Opportunity Program aims to increase the number of individuals from educationally or economically disadvantaged backgrounds who enter the health and allied health professions. The program provides stipends and financial planning resources to students and parents, as well as information about healthcare careers and training.

In addition to assisting potential students in applying for a Health Careers Opportunity Grant, The Workplace helps students receive assistance with transportation and child care.

The Workplace is one of five Workforce Development Boards in the state. It works with employers and job seekers in Southwestern Connecticut to prepare people for careers while strengthening the workforce for employers.
