Five NC AHEC employees received 2018 John Payne Fellowships to further their professional interests and explore innovative educational efforts. The fellowship is awarded annually to non-medical AHEC faculty or staff to support continuing professional development relevant to the AHEC program.
Jessica Williams, BS, director of practice support services at South East AHEC, earned one of the fellowships. This September, Jessica will attend the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient Center Medical Home Congress in San Diego, where she will learn more about best practices and network with other certified content experts from around the country. Jessica has been with AHEC for almost eight years.
“It’s an honor to do the work we do. The ability to assist with practice transformation, working onsite with providers in our region is very rewarding,” she said. “To witness improved quality outcomes, enhanced workflows, and optimization of systems within these practices—I know that patient outcomes are positively impacted.”
