Healthcare career employment opportunities are projected to grow in the San Diego Region. To bridge the gap between employers and prospective candidates from cross-cultural populations, Nile Sisters is hosting a two-day Healthcare Career Symposium. The symposium will expose refugee and immigrant communities to a plethora of opportunities within the healthcare sector. Participants will learn to build career résumés, hone interviewing skills, expand career networks, and connect with healthcare providers and healthcare educational institutions in San Diego.
Nile Sisters Development Initiative invites the public to a film screening of Refugee: The Eritrean Exodus, a powerful exposé of the struggles experienced by forcibly displaced Northeastern African refugees who seek safety from violence, torture, and persecution. Claiming a population of 150,000 refugees and former refugees, San Diego is the largest resettlement site in the state of California.This enlightening documentary will provide San Diegans with valuable insight for welcoming and helping Eritrean neighbors to rebuild their tragically broken lives.
