Andrea Adams, Centralia, a State Fair Community College student in the Health Information Technology (HIT) online program, attended the Missouri Health Information Management Association (MoHIMA) and the Kansas HIMA joint annual meeting in Overland Park, Kansas, April 19-21. Adams volunteered to introduce one of the speakers at the event.
“After attending the meetings, I feel more confident about my career choice, and I met people who can help me find a job,” said Adams.
MoHIMA has more than 2,000 members and is dedicated to increasing and promoting the visibility of health information management through education, communication and advocacy.
SFCC offers a Professional Certificate in Medical Coding (38 credit hours) and an Associate of Applied Science in Health Information Technology (70 credit hours).
