2015 Board to Board Challenge A Great Success!

The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians (GAFP) August 22-23 Committee Conclave at Chateau Elan in Braselton, GA capped off a weekend of milestones for the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA.)

Following the GHFA Board meeting Saturday where staff reported 100% fundraising participation from GHFA Trustees, Dr. Chip Cowart, President of GHFA, issued a challenge to all GAFP Board Members who had not already made a contribution to the Alliance in 2015 to match the $6,500 in individual contributions made by the ten member Alliance Board. At Dr. Cowart’s urging, more than $6700 was donated by the GAFP Board members in attendance bringing the Alliance closer to achieving its goal of funding additional Community Health grant projects in 2016.

Dr. Mitzi Rubin, Dr. Kevin Johnson, Dr. Susan Schayes, Dr. Thomas J. Miller and Dr. Adrienne Mims each donated $1,000 to the Alliance and are the newest members of the 2015 Legacy Club. Thank you all for your generosity! It is not too late to make a donation to the Board Challenge.
