Leaders make a case for disease prevention

June 15, 2007

Albany-- Health leaders came together Friday at Albany State University to talk about ways to keep you healthy. The roundtable discussion brought together Southwest Georgia health professionals and community leaders to talk about important health issues. Southwest Health District Director Doctor Jacqueline grant says the group meeting is very helpful.

"The burden of chronic disease in Southwest Georgia is actually greater than that of the state. That is why it is so important that we do these roundtable discussions, and it's to point a finger at it, but also to move the needle" said  Southwest Health District Director Dr. Jacqueline Grant.

Speakers at the event included the National Director of the prevention Research Center at Centers for Disease Control. Don't forget tomorrow is the sixth annual Men's Health Conference from nine to one at Phoebe Healthworks on third avenue.
