ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — Jared Hulsey's first day on the job as an emergency room technician at Rapides Regional Medical Center was June 9.
The Dodson native recently graduated from the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts and has a career plan in mind, thanks in part to a program he went through a year ago to the day.
The program called AHEC of a Summer is held during the month of June with the goal of encouraging future health care professionals to practice in rural and under-served communities, according to the website for Central Louisiana Area Health Education Center.
