We thank our partners who help make ADMH a success:
UFPA is the location of all ADMH clinics and shares our commitment to provide comprehensive and sensitive care to individuals with disabilities and other health needs. Patients have the opportunity to make UFPA their primary care physician and their medical home or attend the ADMH and remain with their own primary care physician. The physicians at UFPA are now participating on the ADMH and serving our patients.
The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is the lead agency in preventing disease, injury and disability; promoting health and well-being; and preparing for and responding to disasters from a health perspective. The DPH-MCH partnership allows ADMH to work collaboratively on developing the Transition Process as individuals with developmental disabilities transition from pediatric to adult health services.
The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) promotes healthy practices consistent with the principles of family medicine. ADMH has been awarded a grant to provide training and education to individuals, families and professionals. GHFA has assisted ADMH in the development and practice of our GET FIT AND BE HEALTHY PROGRAM.
ADMH partners with the Georgia Leadership & Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (GaLEND) program of the Center on Leadership in Disability as a learning site for the GA-LEND fellows. Under this partnership ADMH has offered training to all 2016-2017 fellows on teens and adult developmental issues and piloted our GET FIT AND BE HEALTHY program.
ADMH is grateful for a grant from the Global Down syndrome Foundation to provide emergency support for ongoing clinics and telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic.
ADMH has been awarded an NIH developmental seed grant to examine Health Disparities in Adults with Developmental Disabilities. We have been provided database training and ongoing support for the REDCap national database. MSM partners with ADMH in the GET FIT AND BE HEALTHY PROGRAM.
