Medical clinics serving poor and uninsured Georgians are dealing with the COVID-19 crisis. For them, it’s just the latest challenge. These charitable clinics serve the most vulnerable patients for free or a sliding-scale fee.

In a new GHN Commentary, the board chair of the Georgia Charitable Care Network says that these clinics will remain open for business during the pandemic, though their resources are more strained than ever.
