AHEC delivers medical training supplies to WFISD

It was Christmas in August for the Wichita Falls Independent School District’s Career Education Center when personnel from the North Texas Area Health Education Center at MSU Texas delivered more than $5,000 in medical training supplies.

AHEC Manager Sarah Long and Community Health Educator and Coordinator Charis Rhoades met with CEC Director Michelle Wood to deliver the supplies which will benefit students in the Certified Nurse Aide, Medical Assistant, and Medical Laboratory Assistant programs.

Included in the delivery were 60 pairs of scrubs, 60 stethoscopes, 60 digital watches (for learning how to take vitals), practice prescription pads, IV training arms, and practice suture kits.

Wood said that the supplies will benefit 170 students from all three campuses, and will take the burden of cost off those students.

“Some of these things the students would have had to purchase themselves so we’re excited to have this donation,” Wood said. “It is invaluable to us as these are supplies that otherwise we couldn’t have provided.”

Rhoades and Long also delivered educational materials. “One of the main goals of our grant is helping future health care workers,” Rhoades said. “These items will go a long way in helping the students at the CEC complete their education requirements.”
