The purpose of the Georgia CTSA is to conduct research that will eventually lead to healthier communities in Atlanta, a healthier State of Georgia, and a healthier United States.

It is important that we view each other as partners; we have come a long way from the days when university research scientists just considered patients and communities to be research subjects. These days, research investigators and communities agree on what kind of research needs to be done and how it should be conducted.

If Georgia CTSA is in a partnership with communities and with patients, then part of the relationship has to be that the results of the research are shared with the communities and patients that make it possible. That is the intent of this newsletter. In it, we hope to publish the results of the research that is of particular interest to local communities, in language that can be understood by non-scientists.
