Albany-- The Southwest Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross is working to bring more skilled healthcare workers to the area.

The Red Cross announced a new Certified Nursing Assistant Program. The three and a half week course includes three days of clinical training to give students the knowledge to assist nurses in long-term care facilities or hospitals.

"This is a program that we've been able to start now through a grant from Phoebe Putney's Community Vision program. We received a $50,000 grant a few months ago," says Chairman of the Board Dan Brewer.

"We're just real excited about this and know that it will grow even bigger with the needs and maybe we'll even need two classes," says Executive Director Penny Bolin. The first class begins August 1st. To enroll in the program call 229-436-4845.
