Rational: Medical Assistants are multi-skilled healthcare practitioners that perform a wide range of clinical and administrative functions. Medical Assistants are employed by hospitals, clinics, medical offices and others. Their professional contributions are of essence in the delivery of care. In addition, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 29% during the next 10 years, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Event Plan: The 2019 Lowell Medical Assistant Day Institute aims to validate, support, empower and celebrate the contributions of Medical Assistants while opening new pathways to continuing their education within the workplace. This event is made possible from contributions of different groups and members of the community.
