Commissioner: Your Thoughts Matter

September 3, 2013

Originally published Sep 5, 2011

As we push forward in our mission to protect the lives of all Georgia's people, you've likely noticed we're making many changes, both programmatically and administratively.

Many of these enhancements to our level of service have come from amazing ideas and suggestions submitted by staff from across the state. I'd like to hear more.

In an effort to increase communication across the state, virtual and traditional suggestion boxes are now available:

For staff working within the 2 Peachtree Street Tower, locked suggestion boxes have been mounted in each break room on Public Health floors. Soon, more boxes will be installed at other key state facilities.

For all our staff, especially those working in districts or within a county health department, a virtual suggestion box is now also available on PHIL (Public Health Information Library). The suggestion box can be found in the upper, right-hand corner.

When making a suggestion or offering constructive criticism, only include the personal information you desire. Our suggestion boxes are designed to be completely anonymous.

With excitement at what lies ahead, I am

Very truly yours,

Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D.
