The Southwest Georgia Area Health Education Center (SOWEGA-AHEC) is a community-driven, nonprofit organization whose goal
is to increase access to healthcare by improving the number and distribution of healthcare providers in 38 counties in southwest Georgia.
Our long-range goals are to cultivate a healthcare workforce that closely matches the state’s population in diversity,
to assure that each community has enough practitioners in the right disciplines,
particularly primary care, to improve access to healthcare.
