This event will be held on Lakeland’s campus at 7700 Clocktower Drive in Kirtland. Although registration is recommended, walk-ins are welcome. In addition to the open house, Lakeland is also offering individual sessions for programs such as health information management/medical coding, histotechnology, medical assisting, occupational therapy assisting, and surgical technology.
