President's Message

The Conference was held in Washington D.C. on the Fourth of July.  What a great turn out. Buses were available to take us to the pier to watch fireworks on the 4th of July.  This was worth seeing. 

Our AMT’s 81st Educational program and National Meeting will be held in Chicago, Illinois again. This will be from July 1st through July 5th, 2019.  Conference will be held at the Hilton of Chicago. Room rates will be $129. + tax single or double occupancy, so make you reservations early. 

If anyone is interested in representing the State of Utah, please contact me at 801-390-6346, or email me at micegobert@hotmail.com

We had the Fall Seminar on September 22, 2018 at the LDS Business College. Our speakers were:
  • Dr. Henry Oh, MT(AMT) AHI “Current Status of HIV/AIDS”
  • Julia Miller, RMA (AMT) “The History of Hand Hygiene in Healthcare”
  • Pippa Mulryan, MS “Cell Signaling Technology”
  • Eugene Demekhin, BBA, RRT, PHCI “The Pathology of Chest Trauma”
What great speakers and everyone enjoyed listening and learning from them.

Medical Assistants Recognition week is October 15-19, 2018. 
Dental Assistants Recognition week is March 3-9, 2019.

They were great speakers and it seems everyone enjoyed listening and learning from them.

Thank You,

Deborah Adelsgruber, CMAS (AMT)
President and Secretary

Message from the Editor


First of all, I’d like to thank our state society president, Deborah Adelsgruber, CMAS(AMT), for organizing and conducting the state society meeting on September 22, 2018.  On behalf of the Utah AMT State Society, I also would like to thank LDS Business College for offering us a complimentary use of their auditorium as the venue for our state society meeting.

This Fall issue of the Utah Pacemaker newsletter features on the cover page a view of the Capitol Hill and Washington D.C. taken from my camera while the aircraft was landing at the airport. There was a lot of excitement when I arrived because it was only my second time at Washington D.C., and I would get the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones at the 80th AMT Educational Program and National Meeting on July 2-5, 2018.

There were five (5) of us from Utah including Ken Hawker, MT(AMT), our board member.  A new member, Celeste Skinner, RMA (AMT), AHI, also attended the national meeting.

It was great to meet our two (2) Publications Co-Chairs, Kathy Sutton, BS, MT(AMT), and Sanda Jones BA. MT(AMT). I also reconnected with my old colleagues and friends from New Mexico.

I would like to thank our three (3) great speakers who volunteered their time and expertise by presenting their respective topics during the meeting. One of the highlights was the presentation by Julia Miller, “The History of Hand Hygiene.” It is an almost forgotten topic about the origins of hand washing. To this day, hand washing is the single most important infection control that all health care professionals must always practice for the safety of our patients, and ourselves.

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, FACSc
Vice President and Editor
