Healthy Georgia: Our State of Public Health Report

Booklet Mockup

The Healthy Georgia: Our State of Public Health report is designed to be a single consolidated resource with the latest available data on the state of public health in Georgia for use by legislators, public health professionals, and other key stakeholders. IPPH faculty analyze data from various sources to highlight differences, both positive and negative, between Georgia, its neighboring states in the Southeast region, and the United States as a whole. Disparities within our state based on race/ethnicity, income, and place of residence (rural/urban) are also featured.

Looking forward to future issues of the Healthy Georgia: Our State of Public Health report? Subscribe to our mailing list.
