CCC Celebrating Medical Assistants Recognition Week

Coffeyville Community College is gearing up to celebrate Medical Assistants Recognition Week,
Oct. 19 – Oct.  23, as designated by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA). Medical assistants across the country will be recognized during this special week and honored on Medical Assistants Recognition Day.

In celebration of Medical Assistants Recognition Week, CCC students within that field will be visiting the Primary Care Clinic and CRMC Medical Associates. They will also be giving all of their medical assistants a goodie bag.

“The event is important for our current students so they understand the pride of profession,” said Lisa Miller, CCC Director of Health and Emergency Services. “We always want our students to feel that their chosen profession is appreciated."

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 profession of choice for this decade and beyond. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical assisting continues to be projected as one of the fastest growing occupations.

The AAMA is the premier organization serving the professional interests and educational needs of medical assistants. It provides numerous services that help medical assistants put their careers on a successful and rewarding track and keep them there.
