CMA Students Hosted a Health Fair at Whitney Young Job Corps

March 8th, 2019

The Clinical Medical Assistant students gained valuable experience as they hosted a successful health fair for staff and students. Over 50 people, even guests from the CRC meeting, stopped by to have their vitals checked such as blood pressure, Cholesterol, BMI and more. Giving the 20 plus students a great opportunity to coordinate, plan, execute and wrap up a real health fair. Students were stationed in various designated areas for 3-4 hours to take care of their eager patients. From conception to completion the CMA students managed the entire operation with a welcome and waiting area and more.

The CMA students were very excited to exhibit the skills that they have been taught because it feels and looks like a real health fair. Although they realized what a demanding day it was to host a health fair, they thoroughly enjoyed it and are looking forward look forward to hosting a health fair once a quarter.
