Harper College Health Careers welcomed Command Sergeant Major (Ret.) Gretchen Evans on August 25, 2023 for the Fall semester Interprofessional Education Immersion Day. She spoke to 130 students from 8 different health careers programs about resilience and the power of hope. Her inspiring story highlighted her impressive 27-year military career, which was ended suddenly by an injury that left her with a traumatic brain injury and the loss of her hearing. Afterwards, Gretchen visited The Center for Student Veterans and Military-Connected Students on campus. The health career students participated in interprofessional breakout groups following the presentation to discuss teamwork, collaboration and how to address hopelessness in patients.
