Athens Healthcare Support Network (AHSN) came to be in early 2021, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which exposed and exacerbated health disparities in our country and region. We know that our current healthcare system is leaving people behind, whether due to cost, quality of care, discrimination, transportation, or a multitude of other issues, and we also know that we have the power to change that if we come together.
While we wait and push for systemic change on a state and national level, people in our community are suffering and need practical support. The aim of AHSN is to provide that support by connecting people, sharing resources, and showing up for one another. Healthcare is a human right, and we are here to work towards ensuring that everyone in our community is able to exercise that right.
We are a group of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds who love Athens and are passionate about healthcare access. If you would like to get involved, we'd love to have you!
