Welcome. It is a great honor to serve as your MN AMT president. I’m proud to work with such an amazing group of individuals who are energetic and eager to promote our professions. AMT certification helped me to build success in my profession—I am in a leadership role due to AMT.
We, the state society for AMT, are excited to have you interested and involved in our AMT family. I would like to welcome our new members to the Minnesota state society. It is so important for professionals in our field to be involved beyond their profession to effect change and improvement, and to represent our presence as part of the healthcare team in this ever-changing healthcare climate.
Also, I would like to encourage you to attend the National Meeting or state society meeting. These meetings are an important avenue for us to learn from each other, network, continue education, and proudly show off our profession’s achievements. Lastly, the most important thing to remember is that continuing education should not be seen as a “requirement”—it’s an obligation to our patients.
All members are invited to submit articles. If you have written one, and you would like to submit it, please forward it to myself or Clara. Your article will be reviewed and possibly published.
American Medical Technologists is a grassroots organization that provides unique opportunities for all members and students. We encourage and need everyone to be involved in shaping the organization. We are excited to have you and look forward to your involvement and contributions! Come one, come all—together we can make difference!
Nilam Patel, MT
