When we tell stories, we can make change.
We’re honored to tell the stories of the people and communities who participated in the Two Georgias Initiative; who created coalitions, embraced equity, identified needs, and overcame obstacles to give us all a roadmap for improving health outcomes across the state.
We invite you to learn more about this work by visiting www.twogeorgias.org, where you can review the primer, and watch the overview film and each community’s individual video.
The Two Georgias Initiative
Whether it’s an aging population, a hospital closure, or the departure of a community’s only family doctor or dentist, as rural Georgians face increasing healthcare challenges, Healthcare Georgia Foundation believes that local ideas and new partnerships can demonstrate what is possible when communities come together to address these critical issues.
The goal of The Two Georgias Initiative is to foster healthcare innovation by supporting local coalitions seeking to address health disparities, improve health, and expand access to quality healthcare services in Georgia’s rural communities.
One’s health should not be determined by their place of residence or their zip code.
See more about the rural health coalitions and their work in the video below.
