The American Association of Medical Assistants® releases observation suggestions to commemorate medical assistants' contribution to health care on October 17-21

CHICAGO - September 14, 2022 - (

The American Association of Medical Assistants® (AAMA), the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to the medical assisting profession, will celebrate Medical Assistants Recognition Week (MARWeek) with the theme "Medical Assistants Are MAGIC: Medical Assistants Give Incredible Care." The national appreciation week will take place October 17-21, and medical assistants across the country will be honored on Medical Assistants Recognition Day, Wednesday, October 19.

This year's theme, "Medical Assistants Are MAGIC," spotlights the spectacular care provided by medical assistants as multiskilled medical professionals. The theme honors medical assistants' versatility and commitment to excellence, ensuring quality patient-centered health care. 

"MARWeek is a special time for patients, providers and employers to celebrate and recognize medical assistants as vital members of the outpatient care team," says Deborah Novak, CMA (AAMA), 2021-2022 vice president of the AAMA. "Credentialed medical assistants are multiskilled professionals who are trained to provide safe, compassionate, and quality patient care."

MARWeek offers employers, medical assistants and CMAs (AAMA)® an opportunity to recognize medical assistants' contributions to health care delivery effectiveness. Here are suggestions for ways to observe the week:

  • Implement new policies for medical assisting staff training, educational assistance, benefits, flex time or other new programs.
  • Hold a special medical assisting training seminar on company time.
  • Dedicate the October issue of your practice newsletter to your medical assisting staff, recognizing exceptional efforts and overall contributions.
  • Offer to display the MARWeek poster in a prominent place in your practice.

To access all materials, including observance suggestions, logos and a poster, visit the AAMA website:

The AAMA created MARWeek to recognize medical assistants' contributions to health care delivery effectiveness. Medical assistants function as members of the health care delivery team and perform administrative and clinical procedures. With their unique versatility, medical assistants are proving to be the allied health professionals of choice for this decade and beyond. Medical assisting is one of the nation's careers growing much faster than average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Annual Solution Focused School Conference to Focus on Creating Safer Schools Without Focusing on Security

Annual Solution Focused School Conference to Focus on Creating Safer Schools Without Focusing on Security
SFSC 2022

A virtual conference for all school staff that promotes school safety without security!

FORT WORTH, Texas - September 9, 2022 - (

Dr. Linda Metcalf will again host hundreds of educators and education experts at the 4th Solution Focused School Conference on Oct. 28 & 29, who will share how they have been able to create safer schools without focusing on security. Schools implementing the solution-focused approach - a model that puts the responsibility on students to develop solutions instead of educators to solve problems - have seen significant reductions in discipline referrals and an increase in academic success.

With a shortage of teachers across the U.S. and higher teacher-to-student ratios in classrooms this year, educators are under extreme pressure to engage students so they can learn. Many students are disengaged or feeling isolated, which increases the risks of ill-discipline and disruptive behavior, or worse, more school shootings.

"Many educators aren't properly trained to handle disruptive or disengaged students, so they're either giving up, moving schools or quitting altogether," says Dr. Linda Metcalf, best-selling author of Counseling Toward Solutions, and host of The Solution Focused School Conference. "A child's future depends on a cohesive and inclusive school environment, and that should not be undermined by disruptive behavior, or the inability of educators to manage it."

The fourth installment of the annual conference is themed "Engaged Educators = Exceptional Classrooms", and is bringing together 20 speakers from 5 different countries. They will share solution-focused techniques and case studies of how this evidence-based approach is transformed their schools and other schools around the world.

Studies by the University of Texas found a growing number of schools implementing the solution-focused approach, and where they have increased student engagement, awarded more credits, and reduced drop-out rates.

Delegates will attend the conference online on Oct. 28 & 29, and will earn 18 Continuing Education Units.

"Schools that implement the solution-focused approach transform into a safer environment of exceptional classrooms led by engaged educators," says Dr. Metcalf.

"In those schools, discipline isn't an issue; students and teachers work through their challenges together; there is reduced conflict because previously disengaged students start engaging; students become responsible leaders; and there is great pride in the school's academic success."

Schools that implement the solution-focused approach are safer without focusing on security.

Using this approach will make schools safer, with less disruption and better academic results.
