Julie Ginn MoretzClose to 300 newly minted physicians, pharmacists, physical therapists, physician assistants, medical laboratory scientists and biomedical scientists will graduate from PCOM Georgia on Tuesday, May 23.

Family members and friends who have supported the students through their doctoral and master’s degree programs are invited to witness their loved ones’ accomplishments as they walk across the stage to receive their diplomas. Earlier in the month, honors brunches, a military pinning ceremony honoring PCOM Georgia’s five military graduates, an awards reception, and a graduation barbecue will be held.

Julie Ginn Moretz, the chief experience officer/assistant vice president, patient- and family- centered care at Augusta University Health in Augusta, Georgia, will address the graduates.

Inspired by her son Daniel’s battle with heart disease, Moretz has spent a large part of her career as a family leader improving health care for patients and families.

Highlights of her career include serving on the national Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute’s Advisory Panel and being the first public patient/community member named to the board of directors for the Association of Departments of Family Medicine. She is a recipient of the Woman of Excellence in Health Care Award, the American Heart Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and was honored in Washington, DC, with the National Healthcare Industry Access Initiative Make a Difference Award.

The formal commencement ceremony will be held at the Gas South District, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth, beginning at 1 p.m. For more information about the ceremony, visit
