The South Carolina AHEC Michel Porter Ambassador Award recognizes a member of the South Carolina AHEC System who has made a major contribution to the enhancement of the South Carolina AHEC. This year, the South Carolina AHEC is proud to bestow the award to Julie Ghent at Mid-Carolina AHEC.

Ms. Ghent is a Health Professions Student (HPS) Program Coordinator at Mid-Carolina AHEC. With over 18 years of service, Ms. Ghent has helped place countless health professions students throughout Mid-Carolina’s 11-county region for their clinical rotations, as well as served as a liaison between students, communities, preceptors and universities. She exemplifies the spirit of AHEC by always coming to the table with solutions and opportunities to expand and improve current HPS programming. In her positive attitude, helpfulness, empowerment and creativity, she supports the students, providers and institutions that partner with AHEC and has become a “go to” person for anything related to the HPS program at Mid-Carolina AHEC.

Ms. Ghent’s work with AHEC is distinguished by her dedication to supporting health professions students and providers and as such they speak highly of her service and enthusiasm. Preceptors spoke of her thoroughness, kindness, passion and dependability in all aspects of her work. Her colleagues at AHEC know she exhibits a willingness and ability to think outside the box and drive innovation and collaboration. Notably, she is credited with being a driving force behind Mid-Carolina AHEC’s success as an American Heart Association Community Training Center and its designation as an Advanced Stroke Life Support Training Center.

The South Carolina AHEC would like to congratulate Ms. Ghent on her award and thank her for her service and contributions to the health professions students and healthcare community in South Carolina!
