'Go Get It': Vaccines Hit Road To Rural Georgia To Bridge Access Gap

Just because you are eligible to get vaccinated doesn’t mean it’s easy. In rural areas and in cities, there are still obvious, and not so obvious, barriers to vaccine access. So what about taking vaccines on the road?

Happy Birthday to AAPHC, a true friend of AHEC and friend to South Georgia!

Happy Birthday to AAPHC, a true friend of AHEC and friend to South Georgia!

Today, Albany Area Primary Health Care (AAPHC) officially celebrates 42 years of caring for our community across Southwest Georgia.

We cared for our very first patient at our Lee Medical Arts Center office in Leesburg, Georgia on Feb. 26, 1979. That's the visit that launched our organization and over four million patient visits later!

Now, 42 years later, AAPHC is one of Georgia's largest Community Health Centers and one of region's largest medical groups.

Our founders, with their mission to create a group that would deliver high quality health care to all, have created a legacy that shines on.

Hopefully, next year we will have the opportunity to gather together to celebrate our 43rd "birthday" as one big AAPHC Family with our staff, patients and community.

Happy birthday AAPHC!
