National Allied Health Week 2023 Preview

Like many healthcare professions, allied health professionals have a special week to look forward to—one that honors them for the hard work and dedication that they show every single day. That week happens to take place during the first full week in November.

No one has to wait until Thanksgiving to express their gratitude. Instead, we will kick off the month with National Allied Health Professionals Week, which takes place from November 5 – 11, 2023. This week will be devoted to highlighting the achievements and contributions of this very valuable group of healthcare professionals. 

Each year during National Allied Health Week, Club Staffing celebrates the outstanding achievements of all of its own allied health professionals. It’s a chance to highlight the excellent work that they’ve done and inspire others to do their very best work, too. (A select few even win some special prizes!)

Those allied health professionals, who include travelers and professionals who work remotely, work in a wide range of specialties and disciplines, including:

  • Respiratory Therapy
  • Imaging & Radiology
  • Medical Laboratory
  • Speech-Language Pathology
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Social Work
  • Cath Lab
  • Pharmacy
  • Psychology

Catching up with a 2022 Allied Achiever

Every year, as part of National Allied Health Week, Club Staffing leaders award a special achievement award to one or more noteworthy individuals to honor their contributions and cap off the week-long celebration.

It’s always a tough choice, given that there are always so many worthy contenders. But the awardees will get a little extra recognition, and yes, some special prizes to thank them for their hard work.

Last year, the 2022 Allied Achiever Award went to Sherry M., a travel medical technologist with an impressive resume and professional reputation. With more than 30 years of professional experience and a passion for the work that she does, Sherry, who calls Kentucky home, always has people clamoring to hire her.

When she won the Allied Achiever Award last year, Sherry was working on an assignment in Phoenix. She wound up extending her stay, and a few months later, she booked a trip to nearby Las Vegas, using a gift card that she had received as part of her winnings.

“I went to stay at the MGM Grand, and I went to see Usher,” she says. “It was an amazing show, absolutely amazing.”

Among the other gifts that she received, Sherry was excited to get a new iPad and a new suitcase, which of course every traveler can use. That sleek new suitcase is now her favorite bag to take on all her trips. In fact, when she decided to treat herself to another vacation after her Phoenix assignment, she packed up her new suitcase and spent five days in the Dominican Republic.

“I had never been to the Dominican Republic before,” she says. “You know how you say, ‘We should do this’ or ‘Let’s go’? Well, I have a friend who is one of those ‘Let’s go’ people. So, we went!”

Then it was back to work, of course. Sherry’s currently working on a Club Staffing assignment in Louisville, Kentucky, not far from her home. And while she’s not sure what her next assignment will be, she’s not planning to stop traveling anytime soon. She reports that her allied travel assignments have helped her become more patient and open-minded, and she always enjoys teaching and mentoring younger professionals.

“I’m going to ride the tide all the way out,” she says. “It’s just so flexible, and you know I love to meet new people.”
