Quincy University MEC Professor Presents at Conference
Quincy University associate professor and Graduate Counseling Program director, Dr. Ken Oliver, recently presented at the Illinois Counseling Association Conference in Springfield, Illinois. Dr. Oliver presented a 50-minute workshop entitled, Community Wellness Fairs as a Tool to Promote Integrated Service Delivery in Rural Areas. The workshop chronicled the process Oliver and several students undertook to develop and conduct a Community Wellness Fair as a function of servant leadership and advocacy. The wellness fair was the culmination of an assignment in a Servant Leadership and Advocacy course in spring 2016. The presentation also provided a framework for implementing similar fairs in rural areas as a means of promoting professional collaboration and enhanced client care.
