Louisville resident assists health care service in Ball State project

Ball State University senior Margo Morton of Louisville is part of a student team helping a health care service acclimate new employees. After graduation in May, she hopes to return to Louisville and use the skills she learned at Ball State to work at an organization that she is passionate about.

In an immersive learning course over the 2018-19 academic year, Morton, nine other students and the faculty mentor are assisting Open Door Health Services, which offers affordable and accessible care to people throughout Delaware County in Indiana. The 10 students, divided into two teams, are focusing on the organization’s marketing and public relations and its orientation and onboarding process for new employees.

“I’m excited to be a part of this project,” Morton said. “Open Door Health Services fills an important role in the Muncie community, and I’m happy that I’m able to use the skills I’ve gained at Ball State to help the organization.”

Morton is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communication studies and a minor in sociology.

“Ball State encourages students to engage in a wide variety of subjects, and my communication studies classes have exposed me to so many interesting, enlightening ideas,” said Morton. “Ball State has armed me with knowledge and opportunities that I will be able to use throughout my life.”
