Bella is not just any comic strip character; she’s a biomedical equipment technician (BMET) who brings the exciting field of Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) into the colorful realm of comics. Created by Jennifer Chester, a seasoned HTM professional, Bella is quickly becoming a beloved figure for HTM professionals and young readers alike. 


Who is Bella the BMET?

Bella The BMET skillfully repairs equipment, motivating a young admirer who asks if they can fix things too. Bella reassures them that with dedication, they can become a BMET or achieve any dream they have.

Bella the BMET is a young, brilliant African American woman who works within the HTM industry, a field dedicated to the management and maintenance of medical equipment. This engaging comic strip character breaks down complex technical concepts into digestible and entertaining stories, making it easier for young readers to grasp and develop an interest in the HTM industry.


In one of her recent adventures, Bella is depicted skillfully repairing a piece of imaging equipment, showcasing not only her technical expertise but also her problem-solving skills and dedication to patient care. Through Bella, children see a reflection of real-world challenges and the critical thinking required to address them in the medical field.
