About the Event:

The South Georgia Health and Wellness Summit is designed to enhance awareness and knowledge of available community resources for promoting mental, physical, and social health in the South Georgia Region. Working in tandem with Valdosta State University, South Georgia RCORP is a collection of healthcare providers, local government, law enforcement, and community members; all with one common goal…to support and educate individuals on their journey to recovery. This event is appropriate for service providers and community residents. Representatives from prevention, treatment and recovery focused agencies will share about their organization and services. Local experts will present on a variety of topics ranging from key issues threatening health and wellness to innovative programs and best practices.
