Mrs. Guy was so honored that John Oxendine, former Insurance Commissioner of Georgia, and Dr. Ted Holloway, former director of the Southeast Health Unit, were in attendance. Both were the visionaries and instrumental in GPT leading the nation with the most comprehensive, cost effective, high quality network in the nation.
