Residents of the Peoplestown and Pittsburgh neighborhoods in Atlanta came together with Emory HERCULES in September 2017 to share their health concerns, learn about the exposome, and identify a health priority. As a result, a group of residents committed to working together to address affordable healthcare access in their community.
Phase 2: Planning Grant
Residents who came together in Phase 1, now the Peoplestown & Pittsburgh Accessible and Affordable Healthcare team, received $1000 to identify strategies to address the issue of lack of access to medical and mental healthcare.
Mission: Working together as a team for accessible and affordable healthcare for Residents of Pittsburgh/Peoplestown Community.
