#WhyWednesday: Dr. Elizabeth Ford

“When you improve the life of a child, you improve the life of a community.”

Dr. Elizabeth Ford is a United Way of Greater Atlanta board member and the District Health Director for DeKalb County. Why does Dr. Ford give back to Greater Atlanta alongside United Way? For Dr. Ford, it’s all about the Child Well-Being Index.
