Attendees will also hear about relevant rural initiatives from the Georgia Department of Human Services; lessons learned with CEO involvement in soliciting donations through Georgia HEART; and a presentation from the Georgia Rural Health Innovation Center and Mercer University.
Future Rural Doctors
Mercer University School of Medicine’s fourth-year medical students and Nathan Deal Scholars will also be in attendance. Recipients of the Nathan Deal scholarship have strong ties to rural Georgia, leadership qualities, community involvement, and characteristics that indicate a high likelihood of continuing to serve in rural Georgia once the scholarship’s medical service commitment has been fulfilled.
