Prospective students considering careers in allied healthcare are invited to attend a special open house at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Biomedical Building. Current high school students, recent high school graduates and adults are invited to attend the open house to learn about the nursing and physical therapist assistant programs offered at Penn State Fayette.
