The Princeton Campus recently presented ANU’s Distinguished Community Employer Award to Dr. Shahid Munif Khokar, M.D. of Munif Pediatrics in Bluefield, Virginia. Director of health care education Pat Sell and career center director Elaine Owens delivered the award to Dr. Munif and his office manager, Denise Akers.
For more than seven years, Dr. Munif’s office has been supporting ANU’s career training by providing medical assisting externship opportunities, as well as employment opportunities for graduates in multiple areas of the health care field. “I am very well pleased with the ANU graduates we currently have employed; we all get along very well,” said Denise. “If I have an opening, ANU is the first place I think of to call.”
Of office manager Denise Akers, who is herself an ANU graduate, Dr. Munif said, “I am very pleased with her. She keeps the office running and takes care of everything.” Dr. Munif currently employs four ANU graduates: two medical assistants, a medical office specialist, and a medical billing and coding graduate.
