Atlanta Journal-Constitution Profiles Advocacy Group HealthSTAT, Including Work With HIV/AIDS
February 27, 2008
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday profiled the advocacy group HealthSTAT, which stands for Health Students Taking Action Together, including its work on HIV/AIDS policy in Georgia. Members of the group include students in nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, public health and related fields from nine colleges and medical schools in Georgia.
Kate Neuhausen, a member of the group and a student at Emory University School of Medicine, said the group's "vision" is to "furnish the [future] leaders" of professional groups, such as the Medical Association of Georgia. Neuhausen added that members of the group will be "creating policy" on health-related issues, including HIV/AIDS, for "decades from now" (White, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2/26).
