The Georgia Health Policy Center is the national coordinating center for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s national initiative Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services. The initiative focuses on learning about effective ways to align health care, public health, and social services to better address the goals and needs of the people and communities they serve.
