“We had a great response to the tune-up clinic and although participation was significant, we heard from many others who wanted to attend but couldn’t make their schedule work,” said Scott Traylor, Associate Campus Director for Online Education at Bryant & Stratton College.  “To help accommodate everyone we have put the webinar online and we encourage all students and professionals of the medical administrative assistant field to take advantage of this information.”
