Each year at the annual Center for Health Administration and Aging Services Excellence (CHAASE) Spring Banquet, each of the HCAD practicum students present on one of their leadership projects. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students were unable to present at the annual banquet, but posters were still submitted and awards were given to the top recipients. These projects fall into four categories: Internal Operations, Customer Service, External Relationships, and Entrepreneurial. The students demonstrate via posters how they selected a challenge to tackle at their site, planned the measuring and implementation of their project, led their team throughout the project, and developed recommendations for future success.
The posters shown here are the finalists and winners of each category. For additional student leadership projects, check out our Facebook page.
