Butler High School junior will participate in Forensic Medicine competition
BUTLER – The Newhaven Court at Clearview team is known for bettering the lives of senior residents and their families. But the Butler senior living community also supports the younger generation.
Newhaven Court at Clearview will assist Butler High School junior Aeragwyn Winters, a first-year student in the Health Assistant Program at Butler County Area Vocational Technical School.
The senior living community will sponsor Winters as she competes in the team event of Forensic Medicine at the Penn HOSA 40th State Leadership Conference to be held April 3-5 at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge and Event Center near Philadelphia.
“Aeragwyn says she has always been fascinated with Forensic Medicine, so she chose the HOSA event to pursue this interest further and challenge herself through competition,” said Tami Bruni, RN, a Clinical Assistant at Butler County Area Vocational Technical School. “She plans to attend Butler County Community College to obtain her Associate degree in Nursing with the goal of becoming a Nurse Practitioner in Psychology.”
Winters is one of 25 Butler County Area Vocational Technical School students who will be among 972 attendees and 720 competitors at the conference.
“The Butler County Health Care Consortium is also sponsoring a student,” said Stephanie Steiger, Newhaven Court at Clearview Director of Sales and Marketing. “I serve as a co- chair for the Butler County Healthcare Consortium. The Vo-Tech is part of the consortium, and IntegraCare and Newhaven Court at Clearview believe in supporting our future.”
