Grant Named Public Health Hero

I've been neglecting One Capital Removed lately to try and enjoy a paper-cut free holiday, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to give state Sen. Johnny Grant a hand for being named one of Georgia's Public Health Heroes.
The Macon Telegraph reports that the Georgia Public Health Association named Grant a Public Health Hero last year for devoting “a great deal of time and effort to understanding the implications of maintaining a healthy state population,” outgoing GPHA President Russ Toal said in a news release.
“His thoughtful and pragmatic approach balances the long-term consequences of the public’s overall health with the difficult budgetary constraints our state faces,” Toal said in the release. “We are pleased to recognize his outstanding leadership on public health issues at the Capitol.”
Thank you Senator Grant for standing up for those who must work harder than the rest of us to stand up for themselves.
