The health care industry is already one of the top employers in Hall County and the Northeast Georgia region, but the field is growing in a number of unique ways. The University of North Georgia is looking to capitalize on the expanding field by connecting prospective and current students with opportunities in the health care industry at the Regional Education and Economic Development Summit on Thursday, Sept. 6. The summit, hosted at UNG’s Convocation Center on the Dahlonega campus, will explore the confluence of education and economic development – how they “go hand in hand for a thriving economy,” said Kay Keller, director of economic development and community engagement at UNG. Keller said there are many occupations in health care that extend beyond the hospital or emergency room.
