High school students on Friday flooded into Hilton Garden Inn & Conference Center, where University of Missouri Health Care held its first Tomorrow’s Healthcare Experts Expo to expose them to healthcare fields.

There is a continuing demand for the jobs, said Nikki Carter, director of Belonging and Community Impact for MU Health Care.

The goal of the expo is to provide exposure to many health care career fields.

Moberly Area Community College and Columbia College also were represented at the expo.

“Exposure is definitely the main goal — planting seeds for the future generation,” Carter said.
