Dear Members, Students and Future Members:
Illinois State Society of American Medical Technologists (ISSAMT) is ready to shake, rattle and roll... and here are a few highlights:
Our Illinois Educational Program and Business Meeting on Friday, May 6, 2016 will be held at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Illinois. We will not only have a total of six CEs for our members but a raffle. The raffle will include three gift baskets and each one will have a Visa card worth $25, $50 or $75. We will also have a final prize that will be given out at the end of the day which is a “Fitbit.” Each raffle ticket is $1 and it will be used for fundraising for a very special cause, the “Tears Foundation.” This non-profit organization provides financial assistance for funeral expenses for parents who have had the unexpected loss of an infant. Representatives from the “Tears Foundation” will be present at Central DuPage Hospital and we will award them with the money raised for this worthwhile cause. Part of our program will also include representatives from the organization who will tell their own personal stories as well as share their insight on their program and the support they provide for those who are grieving. Other topics at our conference include Alzheimer’s, dermatology, healthcare literacy, and the Illinois Chapter of American Academy of Pediatrics. You should leave at the end of the day with great information, education and new resources to share with your team at work.
In July, we have our national meeting this year in Memphis, Tennessee! We will be staying at the historic Peabody Hotel. The website states, “Half a mile from iconic Beale Street, this landmark 13-story downtown hotel is known for its grand, marblecolumned lobby as well as its resident ducks—whose daily parade to the hall's fountain is a tradition dating back to 1933.” Not only that, you will have a chance to visit Graceland and Sun Studio, Beale street jazz, and the Civil Rights Museum, as well as other interesting sites. Continuing education will be provided and you should be able to leave the conference at the end of the week with an overload of education in both the clinical and general medical areas of medicine. Also, make sure you attend the welcome party and the awards banquet while you are at the convention. Both events are enjoyable and give you an opportunity to meet new friends nationally and internationally.
In the fall, after we have rested up from Memphis in July, we will move to some cooler weather in Frankenmuth, Michigan. There we will have additional educational opportunities and CE’s to add to your AMTrax .Frankenmuth has a lot to offer especially during the Fall when there is the beautiful foliage in a colorful palate orange and yellow hues. Yes, 2016 is filled with many occasions for our members to be active in the organization and we are looking forward to seeing old and new members taking advantage of what AMT can offer you at the state, district and national level.
Very truly yours,
Nancy Gabl MHRM, RMA (AMT), AHI (AMT), CPT (NPA), CMA (AAMA) ISSAMT President and AMT National Publications Chair
