My name is Carolyn Griffith and I’m the adjunct faculty for the Medical Assisting program here at PCC. I’ve attended Health Fairs in the past and they are always a great success. The students are hard working, energetic and very helpful to everyone who attends. The Health Fair is a great opportunity for the students to put their new skills into action and this year we have many new community partners participating which should make it even more fun and interesting.

I manage a Staffing Resource Department for the Providence Medical Group and attended the Health Fair last year. I was so impressed at the organization of this event. I met several great students. So professional and excited to put their newly learned skills into practice. Their measurements of my vitals, etc. were rght on, so the students were certainly skilled. They all did great. I will definetely be returning.
