Our Board of Directors

The purpose of the Board of Directors is to ensure the fulfillment of H-STAT’s mission and to oversee the operations of H-STAT.

The student leaders are guided by the Board of Advisors (BOA) and Programmatic Advisory Committee (PAC), which are comprised of professors, professionals, and community partners.

The BOD is responsible to the organization in the following ways:

  • Implementing H-STAT’s vision and mission to serve Georgia patients through education, service, and policy at the local, state, and federal level
  • Informing the public and providing opportunities to engaging in policy and advocacy
  • Ensuring the organization’s financial health through diverse funding streams
  • Cultivating relationships with students, schools, and community partners
  • Prioritizing H-STAT’s agenda to address up-to-date issues of education, service, and policy in Georgia

In addition, each board member is responsible for overseeing different program areas – education, service, and advocacy – and organizational components, including development, evaluation, and day-to-day operations.
