In an effort to give back to the community, the Committee on Racism, Diversity and Equity (CORDE) in the Department of Family Medicine at Augusta University dedicated their quarterly community service project to making the campus a little brighter for staff and patients. In partnership with Lowe’s of Evans, the committee embarked on a planting project titled Spring Forward, Pay It Forward to add a little blooming color and beauty to the common area outside of the Medical Office Building. As clinic staff and patients exit the main parking garage off Harper Street, they will now be greeted with colorful plants and flowers, where previously there was weeds and green groundcover. This project now provides a beautiful area to bring cheer to those who enter the clinic site or sit in to take a break. CORDE wants to thank Lowes and Jimmy Taylor, vice president for Facilities, and his grounds crew who helped make this transformation possible.
