Students from a College of Education class designed and implemented a wireless network system for the Athens Nurses Clinic that allows medical practitioners to share information about the clinic’s patients more rapidly and efficiently. The ANC, one of only four free clinics in Northeast Georgia, has been providing free health care to homeless and low-income uninsured residents in the Athens area since 1991. The clinic sees about 2,000 patients a year. The team included a mix of undergraduate and graduate students in John Mativo’s Network Design and Administration for Workforce Education class.
