Individual Winner:
Paul Plate (left picture) is our individual 2015 Healing Angel Award recipient. He heads into his retirement after more than 20 years as executive director of Positive Impact. The agency was the first in Atlanta to offer support for the often unseen, too-often ignored health facet of HIV: mental health consequences of people diagnosed and living with the disease. Positive Impact provides that counseling.

Organizational Winner:
Our organizational Healing Angel this year is the Equality Clinic in Augusta (right picture). Opened in September, the facility is the first LGBT free clinic in the state. It is a project of the medical students Georgia Regents University. Equality Clinic has an LGBT focus, but its judgment and discrimination-free, cost-free primary care services are available to anyone who is below the poverty line, uninsured or underinsured.
