Non-profits, like so many other organizations, have been tasked with making significant adjustments in order to continue to provide needed services to the community. It’s a new challenge every day, according to Erin Hernandez, the President and CEO of the Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition. She adds that many of the coalition’s programs, such as smoking cessation, which had previously been delivered in person are now offered online. The coalition continues to work with local students, even though schools are closed, thanks to modern technology.
Hernandez urges Northwest Georgia residents to use this unique time to take inventory of your health. You may never end up getting the coronavirus, but you could be susceptible to another potentially life-threatening illness. This is a good time to take a walk, eat healthier, and schedule your health screenings for the fall.
