Access to quality healthcare services is something many U.S. citizens take for granted. Regular care is essential for promoting and maintaining health, preventing and managing disease, and reducing unnecessary disability and premature death. Oral health care is as equally important in preventing disease. For some Brown County residents, access to regular care is difficult due to costs or inadequate insurance coverage. Community resources that offer services to those in need make a stronger community and improve the quality of life for all Brown County residents.
Many Bellin College students find themselves following in the footsteps of a grandparent, parent, sibling or another relative when deciding on a career path.

She came across medical imaging and decided to become a radiologic technologist.
