Here We Grow!
We are so excited to make this announcement, it’s something we have been working on for months now and finally we can let you in on what’s happen here.
Benita Kimball of At Last Bra and Lingerie has successfully completed a rigorous process to earn certification as a mastectomy fitter from the Board for Certification/Accreditation (BOC). Certification is awarded when an individual has successfully completed extensive educational training and practical experience under supervision, passed a comprehensive examination, and meets nationally-accepted standards of practice. Certified professionals are qualified to provide patient care and to fabricate and/or fit appropriate prescribed devices to individuals; devices are used to support, align, prevent, or correct conditions of the body or skeleton, or to improve the function of moveable parts of the body.
“I am honored and proud to have earned certification,” says Kimball. “Working with patients provides a special kind of satisfaction, knowing that what I have learned is going to help someone else return to activities they have always enjoyed. My partner @ At Last Bra and Lingerie has been very supportive of my efforts, and now I will be able to return that support by doing everything I can to help our patients.”
“As Benita’s co-worker, I am very proud that she has achieved certification and knows that it will strengthen our company’s ability to serve the community.”
