Sonja Nehr-Kanet to discuss Community Health Screenings at national conference
February, 4, 2013
Medical laboratory scientist Sonja Nehr-Kanet will discuss the success of ISU-Meridian’s Community Health Screenings during an educational session at the 29th Annual Clinical Laboratory Educators’ Conference in Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 14-16.
Nehr-Kanet, clinical assistant professor at ISU-Meridian, will discuss how the interdisciplinary approach to the screening process benefits patients and student clinicians. The screening clinics, which target uninsured adults with limited access to medical care, are held six times a year in partnership with Ada County, Central District Health and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
ISU-Meridian’s student clinicians, representing numerous health-science disciplines, perform the services in the same setting, giving them a greater appreciation of each other’s role in patient care.
