Education meeting August 7 – Join us
We invite you to join us at our Education meeting on Aug 7th at First Baptist Church 751 Green ST, Gainesville, GA Room 206. Our speaker will be Joanna Jungerman. Joanna is a facilitator for one of the NAMI Connections support groups in Dekalb County and a member of the NAMI Georgia Board of Directors. She will be spreading the word about an important advocacy opportunity. The public policy committee is partnering with a local non-profit, Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, on a campaign to expand Medicaid in Georgia. They’re looking for personal stories that illustrate challenges people have faced in accessing healthcare, particularly, lack of health insurance. She will be asking NAMI Hall members if they have a compelling story to share.
