A meeting of the Senate Study Committee on Barriers to Georgians' Access to Adequate Healthcare (SR188), was held on October 16 at Augusta University. The meeting was open to the public.

 

The committee focuses on the role of advance practice registered nurses (APRNs) in ensuring Georgians have sufficient access to health care. Access to health care has far-reaching effects across the state. Georgia currently has the highest rate of pregnancy-related deaths in the United States and higher than average death rates from diabetes, HIV and heart disease, according to SR 188. Additionally, there is a shortage of all types of health care providers in rural Georgia.
