Convene. Inform. Act.

We believe in the power of community! As a premier convener and thought leader for adolescent health, GCAPP partners with communities to address health disparities and improve the overall health and well-being of young people in Georgia. Community Conversations are designed to assemble leaders across all sectors – nonprofit, government, education, business, philanthropic, and faith-based, as well as parents and young people – for an opportunity to identify emerging issues and work toward creative solutions together to improve health outcomes for adolescents in our state.
To bring a Community Conversation to your county or for more information, contact Shelley Francis at 404-475-6048
