On August 9th, three leaders from the Georgia Public Health Association offered testimony before Georgia’s Public Health Commission. The Commission was formed to study options for reorganizing the Division of Public Health and make a recommendation to the Governor at the end of this calendar year. Options being considered include having the Division of Public Health as an attached agency within the Department of Community Health, existing as an independent agency or as part of another organizational structure.
Testimony was offered by Dr. Bob Stolarick, Executive Director of GPHA, as well as Russ Toal and Dr. Doug Skelton, both former GPHA Presidents.
