Highlight of the Center provided by Amy Glennon with an introduction of the Co-founder, Dr. Gulshan Harjee. CCHC is a charitable/free clinic serving the refugee, immigrant, and indigent population of Clarkston, Ga., surrounding communities. The center’s services are culturally and linguistically robust for a population that includes residents from more than 50 countries and six continents and has been called the “most diverse square mile in America.” A 501c(3), CCHC has already served more than 4,300 patients with volunteer doctors and medical students – and 1 part-time employee. Good healthcare is a basic need without which maintaining a job, or a home, or getting an education become far more difficult. CCHC strives to meet this growing need and has launched a capital campaign to fund a new facility which will provide much needed space and allow additional medical services.
