Medical Assistants Recognition Week
Posted on Oct 26, 2017
Medical assistants are at the heart of health care!
Every year Medical Assistants Recognition Week (MARWeek) is celebrated during the third full week in October.
To celebrate, each day of MARWeek our Medical Assistant students received a small token to show them that the Adult Division staff supports them as they pursue their Medical Assistant training. To round out the week, the class had a special speaker- Bridget Lackey from Mercy Health. Each student was gifted a "Healthier at Home" book, and Bridget conducted a short training to coincide with the book. She told our students to remember that as they start to work in the field, it is their responsibility to help their patients learn to be advocates for their own health, and being healthy starts with things they can encourage patients to do at home.
