The Student Alumni Association and the Office of Government and Community Relations welcome expert Georgia Tech alumnus and Congressman Phil Gingrey. Congressman Gingrey represents Georgia's 11th congressional district. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1965 with a degree in Chemistry and went on to earn his M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia. He practiced Obstetrics and Gynecology for 26 years before he began his career in politics.
