Medical Assisting Students Provide Screenings at Community Event
Oct 28, 2013
Medical assisting students from the Louisville Campus recently participated in “Remember to Remember,” a breast cancer awareness event that was held at Elliott Park Apartments. Under the supervision of director of health care education Bonnie Kiefer, the students conducted blood pressure, blood glucose, and pulse and respiration screenings for the women who attended the event.
Hannah Black, one of the medical assisting students who performed screenings, said that the event gave her hands-on experience which will help prepare her for her new career in health care. “Because of this experience, I feel more comfortable and more like I know what I’m doing,” she said.
Crystal Rogers, an apartment resident who took advantage of the screenings, said that she enjoyed interacting with the students and she appreciated the opportunity to have her blood pressure and glucose checked. “I think it’s wonderful,” she said of the students’ participation. “I always feel so good when I see young girls learning and training for their future, doing positive things with their life.”
