San Ramon Regional Medical Center Participates in Diablo Valley College PanelNov 2, 2020
Team members with San Ramon Regional Medical Center were proud to participate in a recent panel discussion with Diablo Valley College students who are interested in pursuing healthcare careers.
The virtual panel – titled “Ask a Health Worker” – took place on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020. The following San Ramon Regional Medical Center employees participated:
- Lindsay Athan, PT, DPT – Supervisor, Therapy Services
- Chelsey Beck, RN – Nursing Supervisor, Definitive Observation Unit
- Anthony Ellis, RN – Nursing Supervisor, Emergency Department
Athan, Beck and Ellis all answered questions on a variety of topics including school/home life balance, studying techniques, recommended classes or volunteer opportunities, licensing exams, day-to-day responsibilities at work and their motivation for getting into healthcare.
The healthcare workers even answered questions surrounding COVID-19 such as how they each deal with stress and what’s changed in their professions since COVID-19 began.
“It didn’t change what we did, day-to-day. We still see patients the same way we did before,” Ellis explained during the panel. “We’re sticking together and we do it as a team. These situations help us to never lose focus of why we got into this profession.”
Approximately 40 participants took part in the virtual panel discussion, which included students from Diablo Valley College and San Ramon Valley Unified School District, as well as community members.
