Southwest Georgia Area Health Education Center (SOWEGA-AHEC) To support the recruitment, education, training and retention of a diverse health professions workforce through out Southwest Georgia. Testimonials about SOWEGA-AHEC

"The exposure to numerous health careers during my participation in the MICRO camp solidified my choice to go to medical school."
(1)

(Physician)

"I am a product of the efforts of a SOWEGA-AHEC program. It brings students back to their home communities and allows them to participate in healthcare in their communities." (PA-C from Thomas County)

"I think one of the true keys to meeting this challenge of a shortage of healthcare workers is simply to communicate the opportunities. Your TEACH Academy is an excellent mode of doing just that and I again, congratulate and thank you." (Mitchell County Hospital CEO)

"Twenty-four hours after the TEACH Academy I am still on a educator's high about the healthcare field. Having been in education almost 20 years, I have been to all types of workshops/seminars for our profession and can say that this AHEC one is in the top five." (Thomasville high school teacher)

"AHEC is a vital resource in helping to facilitate a workforce for the medical community. It is getting harder to get physicians, nurses, mid-level providers and health educators to stay in the area. Through AHEC, I have had students working in my office who would not have been exposed to the area had it not been through AHEC." (Family Physician Preceptor, Cook County)

"I was hoping to come away with a little more knowledge. I came away with the world." (Nursing student, Migrant Health Project)

"I have worked as a pharmacist for more than 38 years and have experiences shortages not only in pharmacy, but nursing and other areas as well. I have seen some very positive outcomes of having AHEC involved in helping young people and middle-aged people pursue the healthcare fields with success. Our area has profited greatly from the AHEC." (Archbold Hospital Pharmacist)

"As an internist for 26 years who works for a network of seven Community Health Centers providing care to 30,000 rural Georgians, I firmly believe that the AHEC system is as important to health in Georgia as the road system is to commerce in Georgia." (AHEC preceptor/teacher for medical students, Baker County)

"I so greatly appreciate all the AHEC did. As you recall, had I not done all my rotations in an ACGME hospital, I would not now be licensed as an MD in Georgia. For that, I shall be eternally grateful." (MD currently practicing in Southwest Georgia)
