Close to 300 Healthcare Providers to Graduate from PCOM GeorgiaMay 4, 2023
Close 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
