Herzing University-Kenosha Presents Healthcare Symposium


Herzing University is organizing a Healthcare Education and Employment Symposium at its Kenosha campus from 5-8 p.m. Aug. 8, 2018. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and connect with healthcare professionals from the Kenosha area and learn about required skills, career pathways and employer expectations in healthcare.

Additionally, local author and speaker Charles Schoenfeld will deliver a keynote presentation about caring for patients who suffer from neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. After retiring as a UPS truck driver, Schoenfield became a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) and is now a healthcare speaker and advocate on behalf of Kenosha’s senior citizens. He wrote a memoir, A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to the Dementia Ward –Memoir of a Male CNA, which was released in 2011 and has been issued as required reading for students at multiple colleges.

Session attendees will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the Alzheimer’s epidemic and stigmas associated with diseases of the brain.
  • Learn skills to help care for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
  • Enjoy a non-clinical perspective on elderly care, from the point of view of a caregiver.
