When you think of someone who has a life expectancy of 13 years shorter than us, our minds probably go to an impoverished country halfway across the globe. We may think of individuals and families who are living in regions of the world with very few doctors and hospitals and have limited access to resources such as electricity and running water. However, the truth is people are living in our city, and this is their reality.
The life expectancy gap in Atlanta is drastic, and your partnership with The Good Samaritan Health Center, also known to the community as Good Sam, is the first step to provide essential solutions to this enormous problem.
