Through HHCGA’s efforts and commitment, they have helped countless individuals receive the quality, affordable care they deserve.

Uncovering the Health Needs of Georgia's Hispanic/Latin Community
A comprehensive health assessment of the Hispanic/Latin population in northeast Georgia was conducted by Emory University Master of Public Health students under the direction of the HHCGA. The study, which involved more than 90 surveys, aimed to understand the health needs of the community, and the results will be used to improve outreach and support for minority populations. The findings and recommendations will be disseminated through a comprehensive report.
