- Supporting Education. The Foundation provides scholarships and grants to medical students, residents, and fellows so they can pursue their medical education. This helps to ensure that there are enough qualified physicians in the state to meet the needs of its residents.
- Promoting Health. The Foundation works to promote healthy lifestyles and preventative care. This includes providing funding for health education programs like the evidence-based Tar Wars (tobacco and vape prevention program), and other initiatives that can help people stay healthy and prevent illnesses. For example, in 2022 GHFA ⎼ in partnership with schools statewide ⎼ educated more than 50,000 students on the dangers of tobacco, nicotine, and vape products through the Tar Wars program.
