Every five years, the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is required to complete a community scan on the health of women, mothers, infants, children, and teens including children and youth with special health care needs. Georgia DPH is collecting information across the state to identify needs and opportunities. Your input is very important to make sure the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program is guided by the needs of Georgia families and maternal and child health priority populations. Please complete the survey via the link below by October 31, 2019.
