Congratulations to the 2017 recipients of the T. A. Sappington Award. This prestigious award is given to student members who have demonstrated their commitment to family medicine by choosing to attend a Georgia Family Medicine Residency Program. We had a strong year with many of our graduates electing to remain in Georgia for residency.
This year we recognize 5 recipients:
Bailee Blackburn from the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University who plans to attend the Medical Center of Columbus Family Medicine Residency Program in Columbus.
Rodneysha Brown from Morehouse School of Medicine who will attend the Morehouse Family Medicine Residency Program in East Point.

Kristin McDermott from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee is planning to attend the Gwinnett Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program in Lawrenceville.
Leilla Myrick from the Emory School of Medicine who plans to attend the Emory University Family Medicine Residency Program in Atlanta.
Best of luck to the Sappington winners as they transition to residency programs in Georgia!
