The afternoon Medical Assistant Class of 2018 participated in the Dozier Middle School Health Screening over a period of 4 days. Due to a successful pilot of using students during last school year, Nurse Bloom requested our assistance again this year. The health screening for 300 plus 7th grade students at Dozier Middle School. Included checking the height, weight, hearing and vision along with blood pressure.
This provided a unique opportunity for the students to practice what they have been learning in class. The student have been preparing for this event since classes began. In addition Nurse Bloom provided additional training on both visual and auditory screening equipment enabling students to perform those tasks as well. I want to thank Nurse Bloom for to providing a real life health care scenario for the students to participate in and assisting in educating the healthcare providers of the future.
