The Georgia Department of Community Health has developed a new "Service Map" to help families and caregivers access health services in Georgia. We realize it can be a challenge for parents, caregivers, and others who work with children and families to navigate and access various health services that are available in Georgia, so the Service Map was developed to address this concern.
