President's Message

Hello Utah AMT Members,

We are having some cool spring weather, but we need the moisture for the summer months. I just cannot believe how green everything has turn in such a short time.

This year, the AMT 81st Educational Program and National Meeting Convention will be held again in Chicago, Illinois on July 1-5, 2019. We have some candidates to represent AMT Utah State. Please call 801-390-6346 and leave a message if you are attending the National Convention, so I know who all is representing our State. I’ll call you back to confirm. The person would have to be approved and fit the criteria. I can be emailed at gobertmice@outlook.com, you can send your information.

We had wonderful speakers for our Spring Seminar. Thank you, Dr. Henry Oh, MT (AMT), for all the hard work that you do. We always have a good variety of very educational speakers. For those that attended the Seminar, please don’t forget to update your CEU’s on the home page via AMTRAX.

Our Speakers were Darcie Wheeler, on Exploring Evaluation and Management Coding. Christine Klamm on Treating Patients with Autism in the Clinical Health Setting. Thom McNeil on ECG as it should be. Ahmed Dawood on Specimen Handling and Preparation for Toxic and Trace Elements. Eugene Demekhin on Neonatal Heart Defects.

If your address has changed, please update at your AMT home page. You should be able to update on the web page online. If you are interested in serving as a member on the Board of Directors for UTSSAMT, also contact me.

Our winner of the free Seminar was Brandi Halladay, RMA. Congratulations! Medical Assistants Recognition week is October 21-25, 2019.

Thank You,

Deborah Adelsgruber, CMAS (AMT)
State Society President

Message from the Editor


Many thanks to our AMT members who attended the Spring Meeting on March 23, 2019. I also would like to thank the LDS Business College for offering us their auditorium as the venue for our state society meeting. The place is convenient and conducive to learning and interacting with one another.

This Spring issue of the Utah Pacemaker newsletter features a symbolic representation of the map of Utah on the cover page. Our newsletter made it to the top 3 in the Publications Awards. I will receive the third place award at the AMT National Meeting and Educational in July 2019.

We had a diversity of topics in health sciences presented by our five (5) invited speakers during the Spring Meeting on March 23, 2019. One of the highlights during our Spring meeting was the presentation on ECG by Thom McNeil, RRT. It was a great review on the basics of 12-lead ECG where we had an actual manikin and an EKG machine for demo. At the business meeting, we elected three (3) new officers: Sara Schillo, RMA (AMT) as secretary, Michelle Jenkins, MT(AMT) as board member, and Darcie Wheeler, AHI(AMT), CPC, as board member.

After a long time, we finally have a new secretary who will relieve Deborah Adelsgruber, our state society president who has been multi-tasking. I also reconnected with my old colleagues and friends from New Mexico. James Benalli, MT(AMT), and Vangie McGuire, MT(AMT), relocated from New Mexico to Utah.

Some members, including me, will be attending the AMT National Meeting in Chicago in July 2019.

I look forward to meeting the other members of the state society in future meetings. Thank you.

Warmest regards,
Henry Oh, PhD, MT (AMT) AHI, RRT, FRSB
Vice President and Editor
