Valdosta, GA - After 26 years, residents in South Georgia will see a new face leading one local health department.
William Grow will be taking over for Lynne Feldman as the New South Health District Director.
Grow has practiced Internal Medicine in Valdosta for more than 35 years.
Until 2009, he was a Medical Doctor and Senior Partner of Valdosta Medical Clinic.
Grow said he's excited, but knows he has a tall task ahead. Grow says, "The hardest job is trying to fill Dr. Feldman's shoes because she's been here 26 years and I have a lot to learn."
Grow says his dream job has always been to be a physician, and he's just happy to fulfill his dream in an even bigger role.
