The University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford’s is launching a new panel discussion series, hosted by Dennis House and focused on critical issues of the day, beginning Dec. 8.


The burgeoning world of healthcare is the first topic up for panel discussion at “Virtual Learning for Everyone,” a new online series presented by Connecticut’s University of Saint Joseph (USJ) and 2020 Media. The series of seminars focuses on the critical issues facing people in today’s tumultuous environment.

The virtual series kicks off on Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. with “Getting Into The Healthcare Workforce” with Hartford HealthCare. The free seminar will offer attendees an insider’s look at the ever-expanding field of healthcare and the broad range of professional opportunities it has to offer.

Hosted by Connecticut media personality Dennis House (Visiting Fellow – USJ Digital Media and Communications program), the panel of professionals will include Elizabeth Francis-Connolly, Ph.D., dean of USJ’s School of Interdisciplinary Health and Science, and Jordan Seaver, RN, an infection preventionist at Hartford HealthCare.

“The goal of the series is to offer the public an accessible pathway to in-demand career opportunities, and discuss the innovative educational programs that are sustaining our future workforce,” remarked USJ President Rhona Free.

“We truly believe this is a relevant news issue for those seeking a career and an important conversation about the healthcare system in our community,” said Tom Hickey, president of 2020 Media.

The inaugural seminar in the Virtual Learning for Everyone series will be followed in March 2021 by “Criminal and Restorative Justice.” Follow USJ on social media for details on these and future events.
