Community Affairs

Community BoardsChildren’s has a long tradition of community involvement. From employee volunteer efforts to investing in community outreach, our commitment to the communities we serve goes beyond our role as Georgia's leading pediatric healthcare provider. We strive to reach outside our walls to improve healthcare outcomes for children in our neighborhoods. 

Community outreach liaisons develop partnerships with key community stakeholders and support the Children's Outpatient Network with community outreach activities. They work to develop community engagement plans that create recognition and acceptance for Children’s as the area's premier pediatric healthcare provider. 

This includes developing relationships with local governments, corporate employers, school systems, donors, volunteers, and patient families for the purpose of linking Children’s services and programs to the communities it serves.
