“Penn State’s School of Communications had an excellent alumni program, with speakers coming to us to discuss career and internship opportunities. I graduated thinking I would be doing advertising at an agency in New York City, but after doing PR/Communications at HRHCare, I decided health care was what I was really passionate about. I’ve since gotten my MHA degree, and am loving the community health world!”

– Laura Kreiser, HRHCare Communications Department, 2013
