Laura Register

Laura has been a community advocate for many years.  For 13 years, she served on the Grady County Board of Education and in 2011 served on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential (GCAPP), focusing on all aspects of adolescent health. She has worked tirelessly on proactively targeting the issue of teen pregnancy. She has become a recognized advocate throughout the state and at the capitol for funding and policies that focus on evidence-based practices to prevent pregnancy in adolescents.  In 2017, the Carter Center for Human Rights Program invited Laura to share her expertise via a United Nations panel entitled: From Fear to Hope: Overcoming Polarization to Promote Rights for Girls and Women.  Her presentation focused on bridging political and religious divides in rural communities.  When not in the office Laura can be found enjoying time with her family physician husband, 3 adult children or many furry friends that include 20 cows, 3 dogs, and a wild barn cat.   To contact Laura, please email laura.register@hmhbga.org
