Two New Medical Companies Join BTC’S Industry Advisory Boards
Adagio Health and Accredo have joined Bidwell Training Center’s (BTC) industry advisory boards, which help shape curriculum to better prepare students for employment and help develop externship and placement opportunities.
Adagio Health is now part of the medical assistant industry advisory board. For nearly 50 years, Adagio Health has served over 100,000 patients and clients—most of them women who are uninsured and underinsured—in 23 counties in Western Pennsylvania. They provide life-changing services including 9,000 breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings through the HealthyWoman, WiseWoman, and the Komen Mammogram Voucher program, which help low-income underinsured women. Their insight on women’s health will be a great asset for the medical assistant students.
Pharmacy technician students will gain more knowledge about the specialty pharmacy field with the addition of Accredo to their industry advisory board. This specialty pharmacy company serves patients with HIV, cancer, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, and other complicated health conditions. Focusing on these complex conditions allows the pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and nurses to provide more personalized care to the patients.
