Dr. Barbara Henley

Dr. Barbara Henley, associate professor in the Medical College of Georgia’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Augusta University, was recently named to the Leadership Georgia Class of 2019.

First proposed in 1971, Leadership Georgia is an organization of community and state leaders who work to train and build a network of emerging young leaders from across Georgia, in affiliation with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.

Beginning with their first class in 1972, Leadership Georgia boasts a number of influential state and national leaders including U.S. Senator Sam Nunn and former University of Georgia Athletic Director Vance Dooley.

Henley was one of 63 participants selected to make up the class of 2019, which has a theme of “Georgia United.” Led by President Jennifer Evans, the 2019 Class of Leadership Georgia will visit Brasstown Valley, Albany, Gainesville, Perry and Washington, D.C.

Currently serving as Associate Professor and Chief of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Henley is the only board-certified urogynocologist in the Augusta area. She also serves the community through mentoring high school and medical students, and was awarded the National Faculty Teaching Award from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologist Council on Resident Education in June 2016.
