The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) is currently seeking applications for the final cycle of the 2022 Community Health Grant Awards program. Grant awards of up to $5,000 are made to GAFP member-sponsored community groups that support program priorities including underserved populations and community projects that promote healthy practices consistent with the principles of Family Medicine. Current GAFP members including medical students, residents and active/life members are eligible to apply. The application deadline for third cycle 2022 awards is July 9. Third cycle grant awards will be announced in August 2022.
Over the last ten years, the Community Health Grant Program has awarded over $510,000 in grants back to GAFP members, residency programs, FMIG groups and their communities including Wellstar Kennestone Family Medicine for their “Let’s Get Moving” Pedometer project:
” I am motivated to live healthier for my children. I want to control my diabetes through exercise,“ said a Wellstar “Let’s Get Moving” Pedometer project participant on what motivates her to make healthy nutrition and exercise choices.
