Guest speaker Ellen Birrell gave a informative and eye-opening talk about the “wicked” problem of homelessness on October 16th.
Ellen’s specialty is in homeless health care where she has been an advocate for over 20 years. Her expertise shined through as she shared stories and videos of the homeless in our community.
Her advice to those who attended was to keep the conversation of homelessness alive. This is the first step in ending this “wicked” problem.
The career fair is today, October 9th, in SNC’s Patterson Hall from 11am to 2pm.
