On Thursday, April 14, Athens Mayor Nancy Denson directed the ribbon cutting ceremony in downtown Athens to celebrate the opening of Reddy & Associates LLC’s newest urgent care office. Its new location is in the historic Charles Parrott building (this building is registered on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places) on Broad Street in downtown Athens.
This new office, which is the only urgent care center located downtown, will be open from 10am to 10pm Mondays through Saturdays and 10am to 6pm on Sundays. Reddy urgent care will provide walk-in services including IV fluid therapy, treatment for common injuries, illnesses and conditions requiring immediate attention for locals, students, residents and visitors.
This week, the Small Electric Power Alliance added Georgia Power to its annual Top 10 Utility Solar List. This list acclaims a small group of U.S. utilities for solar connections to the grid in the past year. In 2015, 218 solar systems were installed in Georgia due to Georgia Power’s solar efforts. The company is planning new demonstration projects to further study wind and solar generation opportunities and will continue to propose renewable generation according to its 2016 Integrated Resource Plan.
Terry College at UGA launched the Terry Women’s Initiative. This program is available to all students at the university regardless of their gender or major and its goal is to inspire confidence and advance students’ academic and professional goals. By providing resources and experiences to help students in a variety of areas from choosing and preparing for the right major, and providing valuable insights on classroom engagement, the job search and more, Terry’s newest initiative hopes to “nurture well-rounded, successful students who can positively contribute to our state and nation”.
