CHICAGO, May 3, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The American Association of Medical Assistants® (AAMA) installed Pamela L. Neu, MBA, CMA (AAMA), as a 2022-2024 AAMA Trustee at the 66th AAMA Annual Conference. In this capacity, Neu, a resident of Wolcottville, Indiana, represents medical assistants and CMAs (AAMA)® across the nation.
Medical assisting is one of the nation's careers growing much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical assistants work in outpatient health care settings. Employers are seeking and recruiting these allied health professionals because of their uniquely diverse clinical and administrative patient-centered training.
"This position on the Board of Trustees for the AAMA is an honor and allows me to serve medical assistants nationwide," says Neu. "The medical assistant profession is an integral part of the delivery of quality health care, and the CMA (AAMA) sets the bar for medical assisting excellence."
Neu worked as a medical assisting educator for over 40 years. She has worked as a clinical and administrative medical assistant in dermatology, internal medicine and chiropractic practices.
Neu has served as President, Secretary-Treasurer and delegate for the Indiana Society of Medical Assistants, and she served as a President, Vice President, and Treasurer for her local chapter.
The Certified Medical Assistant (AAMA)® — or CMA (AAMA) — credential represents a medical assistant who has been credentialed through the Certifying Board of the AAMA. The Certifying Board of the AAMA was awarded accreditation by the International Accreditation Service under ISO/IEC Standard 17024:2012, the global benchmark for personnel certification bodies, thus distinguishing the CMA (AAMA) from all other medical assisting certifications.
