Legislative Education Initiative
The Georgia Health Policy Center has more than 19 years of experience offering objective information on health policy, financing, and coverage to the Georgia General Assembly. Since 2008, the GHPC has offered a unique legislative education initiative, applying systems thinking to state health policymaking. We offer:
- A pocket glossary of health terms and acronyms, the Little Blue Book, available in print and online;
- One-on-one briefings with legislators;
- Issue-specific research on current health policy matters; and
- Two comprehensive training series for members and staff of the House and Senate, the Legislative Health Policy Certificate Program (LHPCP) and the Advanced Health Policy Institute. More than 130 members and staff of the Georgia General Assembly have participated in the programs and 96 have received certificates.
