Outstanding Site Supervisor Award

Our Fellows and this program thrive because of our health district partners. We really wanted to highlight one particular supervisor that has gone the extra mile for their fellows, department, and community. Dr. Amber Erickson from District 5-2 North Central in Macon really embodies the qualities that we want to celebrate in our supervisor colleagues and the fellows in her district and surrounding districts unanimously agreed.
