Discover Program participant Haley McPherson is a Central Washington University student working towards a BS in Public Health. She has found valuable connections through the program. "My internship at Leisure Care has given me so much valuable experience and the culture of the community has been so welcoming and encouraging. I love interacting with the residents, and it's rewarding to see them enjoying their Five-Star Fun lifestyle at Leisure Care communities."
