A New Year

This past year was an exciting time for our organization! Under new leadership and a new organizational structure, Community Health Works was awarded two federal grants that will increase our capacity to provide prevention-based programming in 2013.

Community Health Works received a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program grant and a USDA Farm to School grant to promote health and wellness through increased access to healthy, fresh foods and nutrition education. . The USDA Farmers’ Market Promotion Program grant is going to allow for the growth of the Mulberry Market, an already successful community farmers’ market in downtown Macon.  The USDA Farm to School Childhood Obesity program will benefit the Peach County School District.  This grant presents us with an opportunity to offer significantly more nutritious, locally-grown food items from Peach County’s agricultural community into the school cafeteria and help students make healthier decisions when it comes to food.  

Community Health Works also houses the Central Georgia Cancer Coalition which continues to sustain and expand a long-standing focused initiative that offers cancer screening, education, care management and referrals to residents in 25 counties throughout Central Georgia. By partnering with local physicians, we are working on several innovative and creative initiatives using health information technology to increase the number of people receiving preventative cancer screenings through referrals and early intervention. We are also partnering with the Macon Volunteer Clinic and First Choice Primary Care to provide care to those without access to the preventative care that so many of us take for granted.

2013 also provides amazing opportunity for the integration of our Health Information Technology initiative that has aided in the transfer to electronic medical records over the past few years. By continuing to be pioneers in healthcare delivery and staffing creative people who understand the HIT infrastructure and can aid clinical practices in the development of this interface, we are changing the efficiency in which healthcare is practiced across our region.

By providing programs and services in prevention, disease management, and healthcare delivery, we are meeting needs of a healthcare system that so desperately needs help. We are excited to be a part of the Central Georgia community in 2013 and cannot wait to experience the positive impacts we will have on the health outcomes for our community.
