Georgia Southern Examines LHD Activities to Ensure Access to Care

A collaborative study including Dr. Gulzar Shah, director of research at the Georgia Southern University Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health examines local health departments (LHDs) and how they can play an important role in linking people to personal health services and ensuring the provision of health care when it is otherwise unavailable. However, the extent to which LHDs are involved in ensuring access to health care in its jurisdictions is not well known.
