The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance, the philanthropic arm of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians (GAFP), has been named the Outstanding Program of the Year by the American Academy of Family Physician (AAFP) Foundation for the Immediate Needs Grants For Our Patients, program which was launched in late March in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Georgia.

The Immediate Needs Grant program has provided more than $40,000 for micro-grants to GAFP member identified needs among their patients including prescription assistance for home bound senior citizens, lunch delivery for vulnerable children who no longer have access to school meals, PPE for charitable care clinics, and sanitizer distribution for Atlanta’s large homeless community.

“We are humbled to be recognized for our collective effort to help our patients and communities maintain health and hope during these uncertain times,” said GHFA Board President Dr. PJ Lynn. “I commend the GAFP members on the front line of this epidemic for going above and beyond to lift others in the face of this crisis,”

The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance is the philanthropic arm of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians. Our family physicians are on the front lines of this healthcare crisis, working around the clock to care for patients. Our members are identifying urgent needs to support their communities – and with our grants of up to $1,000 – we are helping to keep Georgians safe – fed, sheltered and medically stable.  We have already given over 20 grants in 16 different cities throughout Georgia.

We continue to get request for support every day and we need your help to fulfill this great need. We are appreciative of anything you can do to help us reach our initial goal of $40,000.

Thank You!
