– Shelley S., Albany, Georgia
AAPHC has been utilizing Corp members since they were called Commission Officers. I have been recruiting for 12 years for AAPHC and have been using NHSC Scholars and Loan Repayors since then. We have a retention rate of 9 years and most of our provider staff is or has been involved with the NHSC either through Scholarship or Loan Repayment or both. I also serve as an Ambassador for the NHSC and support its efforts and mission 100%. If this program goes away, it could impact alot of FQHC’s including one right here in Albany, Georgia that services over 30,000 patients.
