Grady Ambassador Force

The Grady Ambassador Force (GAF) consists of nearly 100 community, corporate, faith-based, and civic leaders, and was designed by Leadership Atlanta to create awareness and provide community support for the Grady Health System. Members of the Ambassador Force meet quarterly to learn about Grady’s health care services, business operations and role in the greater Atlanta community and the state’s economy. Members also have the opportunity to interact with Grady’s leading executives and physicians, and learn the key issues that are facing Georgia and the nation’s health care community.
