New Doctors Mgm is a Facebook group we created to help new doctors get better plugged into life in Montgomery. The initiative strives to assist them by giving them a place to communicate and learn about local events happening in the Capital City. We wanted to make this platform with the assistance of 2020, Baptist Health, and Jackson Hospital in order to retain visiting doctors. Unfortunately, it was difficult to get in touch with our contacts at both hospitals and 2020. With limited resources, finding these doctors flowing into our community was difficult initially. During the closing week of the Gumptioneers program, we were given a list of doctors expected to come into Montgomery soon.
As of now, we have sent request to over 15 doctors to join the group and are hopeful that many more to join in the near future. We have been contacted by medical recruiters who want us to help the new doctors coming in to the River Region become an intricate part of our community. We are currently planning a lunch or dinner where the current and future members of New Docs Mgm can meet and get to know one another.
