The Louisville Campus’s director of health science education, Bonnie Kiefer, and graduates Ebonee Hood and Davida Burns-Shirts recently volunteered as judges for the medical assisting competition that was held as part of the SkillsUSA Championships.
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. During the championship, which was held as part of the SkillsUSA National Conference, more than 6,000 students from across America competed in 100 hands-on, occupationally-related skill and leadership contests.
As judges in the medical assisting program, Bonnie evaluated students at the drug administration station, while Ebonee worked the CPR station, and Davida worked with students at the medical coding station.
Davida, who became certified as a registered medical assistant (RMA) during her program at American National University, said that she was impressed with the students’ skills. She was happy to assist as a judge to help encourage the students’ interest in pursuing a career in health care. “I like this field of work, and I like seeing the younger people come into the medical field,” she said.
