It’s a fact. We are a leader, partner, incubator, advocate and connector to creating healthier, more vibrant communities where a healthy workforce makes a healthy economic impact. With Georgia being named one of the unhealthiest states in the nation, we are here to work with you to create a culture of change so that our children and children’s children may live longer, happier, healthier lives. Community Health Works serves all of Central Georgia with the corporate office located in downtown Macon’s Gateway Plaza. Make a donation to Community Health Works.

As a local non-profit, we realize our success lies in our ability to evolve and adapt our strategic planning with our mission’s growing needs. Now entering into our second decade, Community Health Works (CHW) continues our successful evolution to meet the health needs of Central Georgia and the ever-changing landscape of healthcare. With Georgia being named one of the unhealthiest states in the Nation, we have our work cut out for us. In addition to serving the under- and un-insured through programs like our Rx for the Uninsured and the Central Georgia Cancer Coalition, we also realize the importance of preventative care to alleviate the burden on our health systems and create healthier communities. New projects this year like the Mulberry Street Market in downtown Macon and the International City Farmers’ Market in Warner Robins have local residents eating fresher, local produce. And in turn, local farmers are producing more local foods. We added the convenience of a card reader at each of those markets so patrons can now use debit, credit and EBT cards. And with our grant through Wholesome Wave Georgia, we are able to double the dollars of EBT users so they are receiving more healthy options for their buck. In addition to eating right, we are also working on the other component of the equation—staying active. We proudly partnered with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to implement Strong4Life in Macon, which is a statewide effort to improve child wellness and address the childhood

obesity epidemic by helping guide local implementation of policy, systems and environment improvements in Macon. This spring, we held our first Strong4Life “Unplugged” event in Macon’s Central City Park. The hundreds in attendance learned how to turn off the sedentary distractions and take the fun outside with physical activity that the entire family can enjoy. We continue to facilitate and engage local health advocates in our surrounding counties through quarterly meetings spurred from our annual Central Georgia Health Summit. This year, Crawford County implemented a beautiful walking trail. Bibb County schools are serving locally grown strawberries (and making it fun). And Houston County is breaking ground on a series of community gardens. That is only the beginning. I am proud to report to the community on our most recent expansions of work in health advocacy throughout the state. While our focus remains our core seven Central Georgia counties—Bibb, Houston, Monroe, Twiggs, Peach, Jones and Crawford—our service area now extends to 56 counties from the center of the state to the coast. We have also increased our staff and bring a variety of talent to the table in order to meet the demands and skills of our broadening mission of regional integration of whole person healthcare. Our organization is strongly equipped to focus on our vision of better health for all people through communities working together. Vibrant cities are healthy cities. From the successful introduction of healthy choices at an early age in the classroom to creating a built environment that encourages active, outdoor physical fitness, Central Georgia will prosper if wellness leads the way. Greg Dent President & CEO, Community Health Works

“Community health works. And the reason it works so well is because of all the connection and the trust and the contributions that everybody has made to everybody else’s work. We talk in our mission statement about regional integration of whole person healthcare: regional—you have to bring people together; whole person—means both the body and the mind. It’s the collaboration that makes Community Health Works work.” Buzz Tanner Founding Board Chair Report to the Community

Coordinating Care for the Underserved Community Health Works for Prescription Assistance For those in Central Georgia who struggle to pay for prescription drugs every month, Community Health Works is working to help. One of CHW’s most well-known programs is the Patient Pharmaceutical Prescription Assistance Program (PPAP) that assists un-insured and under-insured Middle Georgians with obtaining their prescription medications at a free or reduced cost. Working directly with pharmaceutical companies, CHW helps ease the burden of expensive drug costs and has assisted these individuals with obtaining millions of dollars in free or low-cost prescription drugs for the treatment of major chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and asthma. Upon meeting eligibility requirements, CHW will complete PPAP forms for medications that customers qualify to receive. CHW will work with the customer and the doctor to submit required information to the drug companies. If approved, drug companies may provide up to a 90-day supply of medication. In Macon, the program operates out of the Macon Housing Authority’s Family Investment Center. In Warner Robins, it operates out of the Warner Robins Volunteer Clinic. 2010 375 patients served ($1,524,720.50 in medications) 2011 To-Date: 257 patients served ($595,594.68 in medications) In October 2011, Community Health Works was presented with the Community Service Award from the Macon-Bibb NAACP Branch for its work with prescription assistance at the Macon Housing Authority’s Family Investment Center.

Partners in Food Access This spring, two outdoor markets sprung up that have become heralded community events. With partners Macon Roots and the City of Macon, the Mulberry Street Market happens every Wednesday in downtown Macon in front of the Grand Opera House. With partners Houston Healthcare and the City of Warner Robins, the International City Farmers’ Market takes place every Thursday at the corner of Watson Boulevard and S. Davis Drive in Warner Robins. Both producers-only markets now accept credit, debit and EBT cards at the Community Health Works tent, where cards are swiped and redeemed for wooden tokens, accepted by the vendors. Through a grant from Wholesome Wave Georgia, EBT users on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (i.e. SNAP) are able to double their purchase dollars and bring fresher foods to the table.

Since implementing the card reader in July 2011, over $5,000 worth of fresh foods have been purchased by EBT users. With the success of the community markets, CHW is taking the next step with one of Georgia’s first-ever Veggie Vans taking locally-grown produce to the food desserts of Central Georgia. The Veggie Van program debuted in the Fall 2011. Using a retro-fitted ambulance that was donated by Mid GA Ambulance and funded by corporate sponsors like Robins Federal Credit Union, it is currently serving the under-served populations of Bibb County in areas where there is a lack of access to fresh, wholesome foods. This winter, when the farming season comes to a close, the Veggie Van will bring fitness resources and outdoor recreation opportunities to these same areas.

Partners in Strong4Life Community Health Works has partnered with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to implement Strong4Life in Macon, which is a statewide effort to improve child wellness and address the childhood obesity epidemic by helping guide local implementation of policy, systems and environmental improvements in Macon. Together, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and CHW are bringing a variety of Strong4Life programs to Macon to teach our kids about the Strong4Life Healthy Habits, working to ensure that everyone in their lives—including family, schools, physicians and the community—are on board to give the support they need to make simple nutrition and activity changes in their lives.

Five Central Georgia counties participated in Central Georgia Unplugged, a free event which took place to promote physical fitness and healthy habits for children and parents.

Assessing the Needs and Aligning the Care The Central Georgia Stroke Coalition, a Focused Initiative of Community Health Works

Beginning in February 2010, Community Health Works partnered with the North Central Health District to organize the Central Georgia Stroke Coalition (CGSC), a 13-county collaborative of healthcare providers and major hospitals working together to better coordinate health resources and services across the stroke care continuum— from prevention and acute care to rehabilitation. CHW is now leading conversations across healthcare institutions and county lines that will align healthcare providers in the prevention and treatment of stroke incidences. More than 35 healthcare partners comprise the founding membership of the Central Georgia Stroke Coalition. To date, the CGSC has developed a strategic plan, which addresses preventative methods as well as acute and sub-acute care for stroke patients. The coalition analyzes the current system of stroke care through a SWOT Analysis (strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats) and has identified numerous opportunities for collaboration and improvement across the system of care as a direct result of the Stroke Coalition’s formation. Currently, the coalition is working to spread information about preventative methods through various media outlets and by the recent formation of a CGSC speaker’s bureau. Recently, CHW began leading initiatives for the South Georgia Stroke Coalition by aiding in the creation of a strategic plan for the South Georgia regional stroke systems of care.

Assessing the Needs and Aligning the Care The Central Georgia Cancer Coalition, a Focused Initiative of Community Health Works

As home to the Central Georgia Cancer Coalition, Community Health Works continues to sustain and expand this long-standing focused initiative that offers cancer screenings, education, care management and referrals to residents in 26 counties throughout Central Georgia. The Central Georgia Cancer Coalition works to align cancer care services and create organized referral mechanisms to improve the coordination of cancer care across the local healthcare system. Through partnerships with regional healthcare providers, educational institutions and community organizations, the CGCC has worked collaboratively to expedite

paign was launched in spring 2011 to inform the residents of Macon and Bibb County about the health dangers of exposure to secondhand smoke. In April 2011, results from the Bibb County Smoking Survey, conducted by the Survey Research Center at the University of Georgia, was released where 70.2 percent of Bibb County residents were reported to favor a law prohibiting smoking in all public places with specific guidelines for allowing smoking around establishments serving the public. As part of the continued grassroots effort for Breathe Easy Macon, the Community Health Works facilitated public meetings to engage public discussion on proposed legislation that would decrease the risk of exposure to secondhand smoke in public places throughout all of Macon. In January 2011, the Avon Breast Health Outreach Program awarded the Central Georgia Cancer Coalition a $60,000 one-year grant to increase awareness of the lifesaving benefits of early detection of breast cancer. The breast cancer education and outreach program the “Tata Sisterhood” was developed. In addition to raising awareness, the program refers under- or un-insured women, who are ages 40 to 64 and household income is 200 percent and below the Federal Poverty Guideline, to low-cost or free mammograms and clinical breast exams in their own communities and provides a streamlined referral process to link women to available preventative and primary care services. Since creating and implementing the Tata Sisterhood, the Central Georgia Cancer Coalition has assisted 571 unique patients, 40 of which had diagnostic testing beyond the initial screening for a total of over 617 procedures. The Tata Sisterhood continues to market its resources to communities throughout the state. A breast health education booklet was also developed and is offered to healthcare professionals and partnering organizations. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in the United States, and the leading single cause of death overall in women between the ages of 40 and 55.

Establishing a Regional Center for Health Innovation Community Health Works for Health Information Technology In 2008, Community Health Works set a lofty goal of facilitating regional implementation and integration of Electronic Health Records (EHR) throughout CHW’s service area. At the time, the CDC estimated that only 4.4 percent of office based physicians were using a fully functional EHR system. In furtherance of this goal, in 2010 Community Health Works partnered with the National Center for Primary Care at Morehouse School of Medicine to serve as a Georgia Health Information Technology Regional Extension Center (HITREC) Resource for Central Georgia. As a designated sub-recipient of the federal HITREC program, CHW’s Health Information Technology (HIT) Department is charged with assisting Priority Primary Care Providers in better understanding new federal regulations and incentive programs around the adoption of EHR systems. CHW also provides comprehensive technical assistance through the process of selecting, purchasing, implementing and fully utilizing EHR systems. CHW has brought on board a team of highly skilled Clinical Workflow Specialists with backgrounds in nursing, education, health services, IT and other areas that can provide hands-on assistance to practices in modifying medical practice workflows to become Meaningful Users of their EHR systems. Once providers achieve Meaningful Use as defined by the federal government, CHW assists providers in qualifying and applying for federal incentive programs that will help defer the cost of the providers’ initial investment in their EHR system. CHW began its work with the HITREC program in 2010 servicing 23 counties in Central Georgia. Since that time, CHW has expanded its reach to nearly 70 Georgia counties. As of November 2011, CHW is providing assistance to approximately 500 primary care providers and has lead approximately 300 providers to fully

implement an EHR system. CHW has also lead Georgia by assisting four of Georgia’s seven Meaningful Use Vanguards of EHR technology. The Bigger Picture CHW does not assist in the implementation of Health IT just for the sake of technology but as part of the solution to bigger problems. By implementing, integrating and meaningfully using EHR technology and other forms of Health IT, CHW can help improve health outcomes and positively impact the cost curve of healthcare within our community.

Turning Partnerships into Action Plans Community Health Works for Central Georgia

The Central Georgia Regional Health Summit isn’t just an annual event; it’s a year-long movement. A multiyear initiative and seven-county collaborative, the Central Georgia Regional Health Summit (CGRHS) prioritizes health and wellness initiatives in Central Georgia communities. Now in its third year, the Central Georgia Regional Health Summit (CGRHS) has established an annual tradition to collaborate with a wide-ranged group of engaged citizens and establish solutions to tackle our most imminent health concerns. Bringing Central Georgia’s seven counties together—Bibb, Houston, Monroe, Jones, Peach, Crawford and Twiggs—as well as top minds in healthcare and health policy, local government, the K-12 school districts, the faith-based community and various civic organizations, the CGRHS is establishing community-led action plans to prevent and reduce the impact of chronic diseases associated with obesity, sedentary lifestyle, tobacco use and other unhealthy behaviors found throughout the region. At the annual fall conference event, residents, community leaders and representatives from healthcare, education, government, agriculture and nutrition convene and work together in moving wellness to the top of their communities’ agenda. From there, quarterly follow-up meetings are held in each of the seven counties where participants re-convene and assess their community’s progress, working together, across sectors, to reduce obesity and unhealthy behaviors and support healthy living through local programs, policies and improvements to the built environment. As the host agency and facilitator, CHW has been meeting quarterly within Bibb County and each of the six surrounding target counties to discuss the region and county’s most pressing health issues as they relate to wellness within the community, school system and workplace. To date, more than 350 individuals from across seven Central Georgia counties are working closely with CHW staff and partners to develop community action plans to end obesity and prevent chronic disease in the region by supporting efforts to play, work and live healthy every day.

Beginning in November of 2009, CHW partnered with HealthTeacher, a leading provider of online health education resources for kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms, to provide web-based curriculum and tools for teachers to infuse health education into instruction time, regardless of the subject being taught. CHW currently sponsors HealthTeacher curriculum, which focuses on teaching healthy choices and behaviors, for all seven county’s K-12 public school districts, resulting in 109 schools utilizing 1,480 lesson plans during the 2011–2012 school year alone. Among Central Georgia’s 2011 Healthy Achievements Crawford County implements walking trail; hosts Senior Health Expo; and provides educational toys and materials for summer nutrition program. Bibb County hosts Mulberry Street Market with the help of Macon Roots, the City of Macon and CHW. Over 20 producersonly vendors currently participate; Implements Farm-to-School program where fresh, locally-grown strawberries are integrated into the school menu at Ingram-Pye Elementary. Houston County hosts International City Farmers’ Market with the help of Houston Healthcare, the City of Warner Robins and CHW; Volunteers are currently working on community gardens. Twiggs County hosts “Live Healthy in Faith” training, a free course for religious and community leaders; hosts the Twiggs Walkathon in November. Jones County implements a “healthy tips” section in Jones County newspaper; hosts Pedal to the Park event and minihealth fair in November. Monroe County hosts a community-wide health fair with an all-day health expo and wellness vendors. Peach County holds inaugural Holiday Healthy Challenge among city and county government officials for Fort Valley, Byron and Peach County. Kathleen Ashley Director of Programs
