As a healthcare provider, Shandra has witnessed first-hand the limited access to quality healthcare among various populations within our communities. Lack of resources and a host of other factors contribute to the disparity that exists. The aim of Primary Healthcare Centers is to provide accessible services to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. No child should ever be denied quality health care and this group of non-profit community health centers aims to meet this need. It is for this worthy cause that Shandra considers it a privilege participate in North Georgia’s Dancing Stars fundraising event.
