“We were able to host a Kettering ACCS exam seminar for staff at our hospital thanks to the cooperation between SEIU and our department management. We look forward to being able to host more seminars in the future and continue to create great opportunities for education and career advancement for our staff.”

Subodh (Sub) Duggal has worked at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center for 17 years. When the SEIU Healthcare 1199NW Training and Education Fund was bargained into the new contract at PeaceHealth in late 2017, Sub was excited to learn of the new benefits available to SEIUHealth-care 1199NW members, such as the Conference Travel Funding available to Professional and Technical workers.
Sub also utilized the Tuition Assistance benefit to complete the last course in his Advanced Certification in Healthcare Leadership and looks forward to pursuing more education, though he is still deliberating about what direction that will take.
“The Training Fund’s Conference Travel and Attendance funding allowed me to experience three incredibly informative days learning about what others across the country are doing in the field of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. I’m grateful for the opportunities like this that allow medical professionals to stay up to date with changes in our specialties.”
