South Georgia Farmworker Health Project
The South Georgia Farmworker Health Project has become an important component of Emory’s PA Program. Typically, 35-40 senior PA students work with faculty and physicians, providing free care to 1200-1600 farmworkers and family members in south Georgia over twelve days of makeshift clinics in June. In 2003, the Program was recognized as a finalist for the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Award for Campus-Community Collaboration. In 2010 the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the PA Foundation recognized the merits of this project and Atlanta was the host city for the annual AAPA conference.
