11th ANNUAL CONFERENCE! Celebrating Strength & Service
May 4 & 5, 2015 UGA Hotel and Conference Center, Athens

As Georgia’s free and charity clinics continue to move effectively into a future that at times seems uncertain, we are often asked to do more with less—and we are good at it! As health care continues its transformation driven by public policy changes, demand, and economic realities, we have found that this sometimes rough road we walk is a lot easier when you’re walking with others. This knowledge sharing keeps us agile and able to respond effectively to change.

Over the course of two days, the conference will highlight the projects, communities, health professionals and partnerships that strengthen our sector and the services we offer our patients. So join us in the Classic City. Come, learn, and celebrate a remarkable group of caregivers!

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The conference is open to anyone interested in charitable or low-cost health care for vulnerable populations. It serves as an essential educational, training, and networking event for safety net providers, members of the clinic team, volunteers, board members, health access advocates, and other interested parties.

WHY THIS CONFERENCE?

The Georgia Charitable Care Network’s 11th Annual Conference is the premier event for staff, volunteers, board members, health care professionals or anyone who cares for low income populations. It provides high quality education, networking opportunities and a chance to hear from national and state experts on current issues facing caregivers and their role in Georgia’s health care safety net.

col_icon_21About the Georgia Charitable Care Network

Providers of charitable care are uniquely benevolent.  When GCCN was founded in 2003 as the Georgia Free Clinic Network, the leaders envisioned a network of compassionate care givers brought together to create a voice more powerful than could be realized in a local community, which ultimately would create a high performing safety net in Georgia. GCCN advocates on behalf of its members on all issues affecting them. We provide timely networking opportunities. We work with communities interested in starting a clinic. We solicit funding sources to distribute to members. We connect donated medications and goods between the donors and clinics. We investigate new technology issues, such as the most effective software for clinic needs. We conduct conferences and meetings for clinic staff and volunteers—all to help our members serve their patients in the most efficient and effective way possible.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution

In the early days of our nation’s history, the Founding Fathers wrote a constitution and created a system of government with limited powers. The poor would be cared for by charities or religious organizations — groups established as safety nets for those in need.
