We're so happy to announce that we have started our first our family residency program this we have the first group of PGY residents and we're fortunate in that first round group to have PGY to join them. So they just started here this summer. So that is an exciting venture for us that we're looking forward to, for growth and to better serve our community and to patients here. Um, a few tech not obviously, we're proud of our awards and what we've accomplished here as an organization.

I'm live in Montgomery, Alabama, it's like it We're centrally located in in in Alabama in the state of Alabama. The unique feature about where we're located is we are so there's such a diverse and diverse variety of the geographics that were afforded here, we're real close to the beach. It's probably about a three hour drive to the beach, three hour drive to the mountains, foothills of the mountains, if you go up north a little bit temperatures, it's warm, it's in the south, but it's always the perfect temperature. I think for us here.
Another good feature about the area that we live in is we have we're very fortunate to be surrounded by several higher education institutions that service our area and the community. So great opportunities for educational growth and further educational opportunities. There are our entertainment recreation is great here in Montgomery, we have some variety of different things, as you saw on the video to as far as recreation just that's a little bit there. Birmingham, is an hour and a half north of us you can get to the beach, which is Gulf Shores and about three hours Atlanta is within a two hour drive from us. Like I said, the mountains when you get into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains that's about a three and a half, four hour drive from here. So we have a big variety of recreational things that we can take part of here in Montgomery, Alabama. I'm going to let Becca take over right now and talk a little bit about nursing a Jackson.

I enjoyed this.
Thank you Keith. Keisha Manvi, thank you for all being on today and sharing a little bit about Jackson hospital. I think for a lot of our nurses, you know, it's great to hear from another hospital in a different location like Alabama, and some considerations that you might have some things that they shared about Alabama, that really stood out to me a lower than average crime rates than the national average. I think that's huge. I know a lot of our nurses are coming with families, they might be concerned about safety. That's definitely very important cost of living, looking at a state like Alabama, where the cost of living is very reasonable, lower than what other states may be. So also another very important factor and another reason Jackson health might be a very good choice for you. We heard from Keisha, one of their international nurses who said that she decided to stay there because of the love and support that the community gave.
So maybe in a state like Alabama, you have that love and that support that close knit community. So if that's something that's important to you, maybe Jackson hospital might be a good consideration for you. We're honored to work with them. They are an amazing hostel at all with amazing opportunities for our international nurses.
