4-H Mercer University School of Medicine and Georgia 4-H
Mercer University School of Medicine and Georgia 4-H recently joined forces to offer a unique experience for 4-H’ers interested in a career in the medical field.

“Setting Your Sights on Medical School” is one of several initiatives being developed through a new partnership between the School of Medicine and Georgia 4-H. “Setting Your Sights on Medical School”, for ninth- through 12th-graders, is intended to inspire and enable youth from rural Georgia to pursue healthcare careers.

“Setting Your Sights on Medical School” is coordinated by Jean Sumner, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine, and Laura Bland, director of community outreach and population health, as well as Lee Anna Deal, Southeast District 4-H program development coordinator, Brandi McGonagill, Bleckley County 4-H agent, and Abby Smith, Effingham County 4-H agent.

“Mercer University School of Medicine is honored to partner with Georgia 4-H,” said Dr. Sumner. “4-H is an outstanding service-based leadership organization that offers life-changing opportunities to young Georgians. Mercer is committed to its mission to improve access to health care in rural and underserved areas of this state by providing physicians to this state. Mercer University School of Medicine only admits Georgia residents. Together we can open doors to young people from across this state, and particularly from rural areas, who are interested in entering health professions and returning to rural Georgia to serve.”

“We are so excited that Mercer University School of Medicine reached out to Georgia 4-H in an effort to help young people from rural areas of Georgia make going to medical school a reality,” said Deal. “Our mission in Georgia 4-H is to offer opportunities like this for young people to acquire knowledge and develop skills to help them reach their goals. Hands-on learning experiences, like this event at Mercer, are just the type of programming 4-H’ers get excited about being a part of. We hope that we have impacted these young people in a positive way to help them reach their future goals.”
