The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting Nov. 13 for Allied Medical Training Centers at 445 E.G. Miles Parkway, Suite 104, in Hinesville.
Allied Medical Training Centers was started by Natasha Golden with her partner, Desmond Gordon. They offer courses in medical billing and coding, phlebotomy, medical administrative assisting, clinical medical assisting, patient care technician, medical records specialist and certified EKG technician.
Chamber Membership Coordinator Amber Barbaro welcomed Golden and Gordon, along with their family and friends and Chamber members. She further congratulated them on their endeavor and assured them the full support of the Chamber.
One reason why Golden started the medical training center was to help low-income individuals in Liberty County.
“My focal market was low-income because people want a way out,” she said.
During the ribbon cutting, Gordon and Golden gave away a scholarship to Michele McCray, a mother of eight who was looking for a way to jump-start a new career. The scholarship included tuition, paying for her national certification test and new scrubs.
“Hopefully, we can improve the community, one student at a time,” Golden said.
