October 23 - 29 is Healthcare Provider Week. This is a week to recognize and celebrate the hardworking members who come together as part of a cohesive team to provide quality and compassionate healthcare to the residents of Saskatchewan. We heard from Jennifer, a Medical Office Assistant who works in Tuberculosis Prevention and Control.
This work doesn't always happen within the confines of an office or healthcare facility, she also travels to communities which are impacted by tuberculosis in order to support the care team in the field. This is one of her favourite parts of her job, because she gets to meet the patients and be part of the team to help control the spread of tuberculosis.
Working as Medical Office Assistant during a global pandemic can be overwhelming. There is much work to do, but working as a team and knowing that the work they do can help to prevent the spread of both Covid and tuberculosis is rewarding. Jennifer, thank you for all that you do! We appreciate your role in health care as vital to keeping our community safe and healthy.
