Two youngsters jumped into a Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) student’s jam session to move like Jackson. The student pounded on a snare drum and a makeshift set of assorted buckets with a friendly sign asking for donations for his VCU tuition.

The boys moonwalked and strutted their stuff to the rhythm of the music. But the Michael clones beat it when their mommies called them — and when the cheers faded.

Bull Run Foot Clinic Staff

The Bull Run Foot Clinic has always opened its doors to the young adults looking for opportunities in the medical and business industry. Eager students may find paid internships or part-time work if they visit their area healthcare clinics.

Tina, a Pre-Med student at James Madison University, works in the Bull Run Foot Clinic during every school break. Nursing, Biology, Psychology, Dental, and even Marketing students, have all raced up and down the halls of the clinics absorbing any knowledge for the future career.

Doctors and administrators encourage these students to take advantage of the experience and enjoy watching these students blossom in life.

The young ladies of the month — the graduates — sport the traditional white dresses under their scholarly cap and gown. But if your eyes stray to their feet, you may gasp. These young adults of today are strutting in shoes that may end up crippling their feet.

Laura, a Bull Run Foot Clinic assistant, graduated last week. She understands the consequences of high heels, however, being fashionable was more important. Her shoes, as well as the footwear for 95% of the ladies on the stage, were terrifying. Straps, and platforms with 4 to 6 inch spikes were the style for the evening.

The Washington Post reported today that high heels can put stress on the feet, ankles, knees, and back triggering pain throughout the body.

Laura promised me that the weapons on her feet will not be a common practice — this was a special occasion. However, for the ladies that wear them daily, reconsider your footwear. Women’s foot surgeries contribute to $3.5 billion in annual spending to combat the after effects of high heels.

The last few months have been busy for Theresa. She has spent a lot of time at George Mason University to stay on top of the transformation in healthcare marketing.

Theresa said, “Healthcare practices are slowly getting on board with the  tools to help bridge the communication gap between doctor and patient.”

Interactive websites, social media, and community outreach programs are options available for doctors to merge into their practices.

Theresa said,  ” Mason offers exciting courses in the Communication discipline to challenge business professionals. Continuing education is important, especially in healthcare.  It is also a good idea to keep your mind stimulated.  A healthy mind fuels a healthy lifestyle.”

Mason’s Media Relations sat down with Theresa recently to discuss the opportunities in adult education:
