Cobb2020 Partner Spotlight

Dr. Monica Nandan, Director of Strategic Partnerships & Social Impact and Professor of Social Work & Human Services at Kennesaw State University, was recently honored with the Cobb2020 Partner of the Year Award for 2019. The award was announced on December 12th at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Outpatient Center in Kennesaw, GA.

The Cobb2020 Partner of the Year Award not only highlights a Steering Committee Member who had a significant impact on Cobb2020 – A Partnership for a Healthier Cobb County Coalition, during 2019, but it also recognizes the work an individual has done related to the Cobb County Community Health Improvement Plan.

Dr. Nandan and her agency have been active partners with Cobb2020 since September 2014. She helped create the Behavioral Health Workgroup (BHWG) and has co-lead the group over the past two years. The BHWG has had numerous noteworthy successes under Dr. Nandan’s leadership, which include hosting the 2017 Cobb & Douglas Behavioral Health Roundtable, receiving grant funding for various mental health research projects, and hosting New Horizons: A Mental Health Symposium for Community Members.

“Dr. Nandan has been an extraordinary leader within Cobb2020,” said Dr. Jacqueline Dow, the Membership Chair for Cobb2020 and the Planning & Partnership Director at Cobb & Douglas Public Health.  “She has engaged partners from across multiple sectors to discuss critical issues and provide mental health resources to those in need.”
