GCDD's Gainesville Media Roundtable Discussion Receives News Coverage

The Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities (GCCD)  hosted a media roundtable discussion and luncheon in Gainesville with co-sponsors Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS), Project SEARCH and the Hall County School System.

Media representatives had the opportunity to interact in a roundtable discussion and take a tour at Northeast Georgia Health System and see the employment opportunities and internships available for young people with disabilities at work through Project SEARCH, a program designed for students with disabilities whose main goals are employment and who will benefit from career exploration.

The Gainesville Times took part in this opportunity and has written an article providing a glimpse in to the workday of several Project SEARCH workers at NGHS.
