This three-part webinar series will provide an analysis of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the practice of patient-centered, team-based care with regards to the provider/MA dyad. We will highlight the importance of a team-based care approach as health organizations transition from a COVID-19 response practice to a new practice reality, and explore the role of the medical assistant in the team during COVID-19 and into the future.
The series is hosted by the Weitzman Institute and the National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA). NIMAA is a non-profit learning institute that trains medical assistants to work in high-performing primary care settings. NIMAA was created by community health centers to address critical workforce shortages and provide education opportunities in the communities health centers serve.
