We are aware that several Georgia communities saw extensive damage on March 3, 2019 when multiple tornadoes traveled through Alabama and Georgia. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been impacted by these storms and for the families who lost loved ones.

Because damage is still being assessed in the impacted communities, we want you to know that the Georgia Academy’s Foundation (Georgia Healthy Family Alliance) has a Disaster Relief Fund to help our members who may have experienced damage to their practice.  We established this fund in 2007 and were able to help two family physicians who lost their practices when a tornado ripped through downtown Americus.

If you are aware of a family physician in need or if you have damage to your office don’t hesitate to contact us at (404) 321-7445.  Either Kara Sinkule (ksinkule@gafp.org) or Fay Fulton (ffulton@gafp.org) can assist you with filling out a simple disaster relief application.
