Our presenters on Oct 24th were Patty Kaufman, Baker College President, and Karen Bratus, DDS, VP of Academic Affairs.  Since 1911, the mission of Baker College is to provide quality higher education and training which enable graduates to be successful throughout challenging and rewarding careers.  It offers 7 fields of study at 9 campuses and online.  Last year, 4,579 students graduated from their programs.
Its dental program has 33 students preparing to be dental hygienists who learn in state of the art facilities.  As part of the students learning process, and a way to reduce the financial barriers of dental work, the school offers very inexpensive teeth cleaning and x-rays.  Our speakers are looking to spread the word of the services the school provides, which can help an individual’s overall health.
