Jot down healthcare issues or concerns you have about you and your family's healthcare. Are you interested in a specific condition or disease, or do you want to learn more about general healthcare? Is there a disorder that runs in your family that you need to learn more about or are you pregnant and need to know about what to expect for the next nine months? Writing down your issues and needs helps you to narrow your seminar choices.
Research seminars online at websites like Lorman Education Services or Seminars for Health to find schedules for your area. Lorman's lists seminars by state but they offer seminars other than healthcare ones, so you will need to look carefully through the list.(See Resources below.)
Contact your local community college or university for information about healthcare seminars that will be held on campus. Ask about college credits you can earn through these college-based seminars.
Talk to your local healthcare establishment to find out about seminars or classes held at that facility. Ask whether reservations are necessary and if there is any cost involved.
Consider organizing a healthcare seminar for your community. This is a great option when you live in a small community where seminars are not held with any regularity. Contact a national seminar company like those listed in "Resources" or contact the marketing or education director at your local hospital or clinic to find a local doctor or nurse who is interested in public speaking. Offer them a fee based on what you earn from ticket sales, or ask if your speaker would do the seminar without a fee.
