The Allied Health Department at Presentation College is observing Medical Assistants Recognition Week, Oct. 21-25, as designated by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA). Medical assistants across the country will be recognized during this special week. In Aberdeen, Oct. 23 has been proclaimed Medical Assistant’s Day by Mayor Levsen.
“This is a great week to take a moment to recognize local Medical Assistants for all that they do,” said Trisha Waldman, Allied Health Department chair.
Medical assisting is an allied health profession whose practitioners function as members of the health care delivery team and perform administrative and clinical procedures. With their unique versatility, medical assistants are proving to be the allied health professional of choice for this decade and beyond.
