Pee Dee AHEC
Pee Dee AHEC has been co-sponsoring “Infant Adoption Training Initiative: Understanding Infant Adoption” programs throughout its 12-county region, presented by Sharon Cole, the assistant director of South Carolina Adoptions. This free, 4.5-hour professional development opportunity funded through the Department of Health and Human Services, is developed for nurses, social workers, and other helping professionals to learn how to discuss adoption as an option with patients and clients who may not be certain if they can parent a child. The training also provides more information about adoption law and practices in each state, birth fathers’ rights and responsibilities, and issues related to counselling teens, social and cultural influences associated with adoption and nondirective counseling techniques. Pee Dee AHEC has co-sponsored trainings at Tidelands Health, Waccamaw Medical Park South Conference Center, and McLeod Regional Medical Center. An upcoming training scheduled is scheduled for September 12 at Prisma Health Tuomey. Register online via Pee Dee AHEC’s website.
