A Bit About Us
Turning Interest Into Action
Share Health Southeast Georgia is dedicated to improving the health of all generations in our sixteen-county community by cultivating partnerships and providing philanthropic and advocacy support to the Southeast Health District.
We work to accomplish our mission by:
Engaging local community partners to help us identify local health issues and address them via community driven strategies.
Utilizing data to identify and increase understanding of the issues and to determine the strategies necessary to address them.
Opening doors to funding streams and resources traditionally unavailable to government agencies that allow us the means to address local health issues; and
Providing training via scholarships to retain a skilled healthcare workforce.
Share Health Southeast Georgia serves the health care needs of 16 counties in Southeast Georgia. We maintain a close partnership with the Southeast Health District, one of 16 health districts in Georgia. The Southeast Health District is responsible for preventing disease, injury and disability, promoting health and wellbeing and preparing and responding to disasters in our 16-county region.
The Southeast Health District provides our board with public health expertise and consultation on community health issues and concerns via an Advisory Committee. Dr. Rosemarie Parks, Southeast Health District Director serves as an ex-officio member of our board.
