Power of Hope flyerHarper 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.
