DEMM high-def WhiteBy Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP®

Welcome, all ME-P readers and subscribers, to the Fulton County Department of Health & Wellness Website, and department, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The interim Director of Health Services is David A. Sarnow, M.D, MPH.

On the site, and in the department itself, you will find information on health topics to keep the community safe from health threats, promoting better health and helping Fulton County, Georgia residents find the health care information they need.

Of course, the others states have similar public health programs. And so, you are welcomed to enjoy the virtual website and explore the physical department – which I bypass almost daily.
