Spotlight on Region 3
by Allison Wingfield, CT(ASCP)CM MBCM
Region 3 Director
This coming year is an exciting time for Region 3 as it is gearing up for the next successful ASCT Annual Conference to be held in San Antonio, Texas! This past conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida saw two Region 3 student presentation winners, Chowdhury Tabassum, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center School of Health Professions and Jennifer Paul of the UAMS Cytotechnology Program. Texas is home to both the MD Anderson Cancer Center and Ft. Sam Houston Medical Education Training Campus cytotechnology programs, and we are pleased to facilitate their students’ introduction to ASCT.
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) cytotechnology students and faculty volunteered time this year at the 12th St. Health & Wellness Center located in Little Rock, Arkansas. The students were part of interdisciplinary teams assisting with pelvic exams, Pap tests and breast exams during Women’s Health Nights. They created lasting relationships with various other disciplines at UAMS and with families in the community. The students presented the center with bilingual brochures of their own design explaining Pap test procedures and results.
Also, Catherine Smith, CT(ASCP)CM was presented with an outstanding service award for her valuable contribution.
