Breathe Easy Cobb
Metro Atlanta Ambulance Service is now a tobacco-free workplace. The ambulance service has now mandated that tobacco, in any form, will not be permitted in any space and/or vehicle leased or owned the MAAS.
The City of Smyrna adopted a smoke-free environment for its parks ensuring that individuals and families that come to the local parks for their daily exercise or gatherings are in a tobacco-free environment.

It's National Berry Month, and to celebrate all things strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and more, we included a fun recipe for you and your family to try and enjoy!

- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
- 2 1/2 cups (1-inch) sliced asparagus (about 1 pound)
- 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans, toasted
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in rind.
Cook asparagus in boiling water 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into ice water; drain. Combine preserves mixture, asparagus, and raspberries in a bowl; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with pecans.

Cobb2020 Success Story
Good Samaritan Health Center of Cobb (Good Sam) delivers quality primary and preventative healthcare to the uninsured, underinsured and working poor in our communities. Support from the CDC Community Transformation Grant (CTG) has helped Good Sam improve the health and wellness of low income families through improved use of high impact, quality clinical preventative services and improved outcomes in Good Samaritan's Quality Assurance Program.
The CTG mini grant helped Good Samaritan purchase 2 EMR tablets for provider staff and volunteers to access the Practice Partner EMR. The availability of more computers has allowed us to provide more access to care for patients in need. Support from the CTG mini grant has also improved evaluation through the Practice Partner and the Practice Partner Research Network which provides an outstanding record and reporting system for Good Sam to track the level of quality care we deliver.
