Herzing University-Online Names 2014 Student of the Year
Last April, as Steven was nearing the completion of his medical billing degree, his partner was diagnosed with cancer.
Last April, as Steven was nearing the completion of his medical billing degree, his partner was diagnosed with cancer. He recalls:
“There is no greater feeling of helplessness than being on the sidelines watching someone go through cancer treatments. Something was tugging at me—I felt like I could more. I contacted Herzing again and asked what it would take to continue into the Medical Assisting program. It turned out that my coursework from my first degree would transfer over.
Before I knew it, I was starting my externship at the oncology clinic—and I knew I had made the right decision to re-enroll. I understood the fear and anxiety of the patients and family members in a unique way. I am thrilled to say that as of April 1st of this year, I will have a position with the oncology clinic.”
Congratulations, Steven, on an honor well-deserved!
