Dr. Ricardo Azziz was inaugurated as the 8th president of Georgia Health Sciences University in Augusta today.

Azziz took the job nearly a year ago and immediately pushed to change the institution’s name from The Medical College of Georgia.

Since then he has worked to raise its national profile and integrate the university with its hospitals and clinics.

GHSU students and faculty will participate in a day of service Saturday as part of the week long inaugural celebration.
