Student completes summer practicum at Meridian Health in New Jersey
Sarah Loh traveled to New Jersey to complete her summer practicum at Meridian Health in the Cultural Diversity Department.
She helped educate her superiors on the importance of language services as well as the level of impact language assistance programs have on the length of stay in health facilities. Her Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats (SWOT) analysis brought a fresh perspective that enabled further examination of critical areas for improvement and maximization.
Sarah brought a different perspective to senior leadership on targeting a younger workforce with questions such as should we really fault the new generation for looking more casual or rather focus on skill set rather than appearances? Additionally, Sarah helped with several marketing projects, including maximizing usage of the website to emphasize the importance of every department within the organization.
“I learned at Meridian Health that every decision has diverse implications. The health system is extraordinary and innovative, and I am grateful to have experienced the unique culture that makes up the organization and its community,” states Loh.
