Medical Assistants predominately work in doctors’ offices, assisting with patient care, insurance and billing. Phlebotomists work in laboratories such as Lab Corp but are also employed in hospitals. Community health workers bridge the gap between the community and the health care, government and social services systems. They assist individuals and families to obtain access to resources including health insurance, food, housing, quality care, and heath information. 

For more information and an application, contact Middlesex County Continuing Education at 732-906-2556 or cgreen@middlesexcc.edu as soon as possible.

Middlesex College is based in Edison, where it occupies about 200 acres of what used to be a sprawling former U.S. Army weapons depot. The school has centers in New Brunswick and Edison.
