Medical Student Has a Rewarding Volunteer Experience

Aug 11, 2014

The Richmond Campus recently took part in the Madison County Heart Chase, a team-based adventure competition held by the American Heart Association.

Linda Dominguez, a medical assisting student, participated in the event by providing blood pressure screenings to everyone who attended.  Linda’s grandfather passed away after experiencing a massive heart attack, and she said that she wanted to be involved in anything that brings awareness to heart disease and its prevention.

Linda said that participating in the Heart Chase gave her an opportunity to get more practice in taking blood pressure, but more importantly, it taught her how to deal with the public, since in her chosen career she will need to deal with people on a daily basis.

She recommends that students volunteer at this event in the future, as it will not only give them practice in using skills they have learned in the classroom, but it will help them with their people skills, as well.
