Medical Assisting Students Serve their Community at Local Health Fair

Sep 08, 2014

On August 28th, medical assisting students from the Danville, Kentucky Campus conducted health screenings at their local Walmart.  Under the supervision of director of health care education Stephanie Slone and instructor Jennifer Lyon, the students performed blood pressure and blood glucose checks for more than sixty shoppers who visited their booth.

“The health fair at Walmart was a great lesson. Encouraging and challenging shoppers to allow us to test them, and [educating them on] the importance of knowing their numbers was invigorating,” said medical assisting student Melanie Caulder. “The experience was a great opportunity to practice our skills.”

Student Jessica Pike also felt that the event was a good hands-on experience, and she enjoyed the opportunity to represent American National University. “I enjoyed walking around and telling people about our school and my experience as a student at National,” she said.

Stephanie and Jennifer both felt that the students did an outstanding job performing the screenings.  “They were very professional and showed confidence in their skills,” Stephanie said.
