Since the phlebotomy certification program started at the Akron Area Campus, LabCare Plus has provided externship positions for 12 students. LabCare Plus is an outpatient diagnostic lab with several sites located throughout the Akron area. They offer careers for certified phlebotomists and have provided valuable experience for American National University students preparing for a career in this area.
On behalf of American National University, students Holly Curtis, Cathy Waddle, and Shannon Boak, along with Director of Health Care Education Debra Tymcio, recently presented a plaque of recognition to Carla Davenport, LabCare satellite operations supervisor honoring LabCare as a Distinguished Community Employer.
“This partnership is vital to the success of our phlebotomy program,” explained Debra. “They are instrumental to training and building confidence in our students. We greatly appreciate the support LabCare Plus has provided to the students and the program.”
