Childhood obesity, dental and medical services, mental health care, and HIV prevention are among the issues addressed by a new round of grants from the Georgia Health Foundation.

The foundation was created in 1985 through the conversion of a nonprofit HMO into an independent organization. The Georgia Health Foundation, dedicated to improving the health of Georgians, has awarded 515 grants totaling almost $10 million over its 30 years of operation.

The latest grants were made to 22 organizations, which include Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta; the Center for Black Women’s Wellness; the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute; Georgia State University’s School of Public Health; Good Samaritan Health Center of Gwinnett; Grady Health Foundation; Voices for Georgia’s Children; and the YWCA of Northwest Georgia.
