Health equity is achieved when the most disadvantaged groups have complete agency over their own health decisions.

Taylor Jolly was raised in LaGrange, Georgia, but found a home in Macon after attending Mercer University. Taylor is a fervent advocate and ally for underrepresented communities in the fight for health equity. Before joining GHC, Taylor served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia. During her time as a Peace Corps Volunteer, Taylor created a leadership course to help students develop leadership skills and challenge cultural gender norms. She found a passion for story telling and advocacy when she created a documentary titled "Bears Speak" to share the experiences of relationship violence and sexual assault survivors. As a Peace Corps Volunteer, Taylor began reading and writing poetry. GHC is a community that values the creativity and passion of young people; Taylor wants to be a part of this community that is dedicated to achieving health equity while improving her own leadership skills and abilities.
