Junior Health Advocates


Junior Health Advocates is a healthy living educational program offered by Northside Hospital-Cherokee for children in grades K-8 in Cherokee County schools.

Each class offers a 35-minute interactive presentation, and students receive an activity book and a gift to reinforce each subject. 

To schedule a class, contact Lana Mayfield by phone at (678) 388-6401 or by email at

A two-week advance notice is required, and a one-week cancellation is requested. We ask that each school limits scheduled presentations to three per grade level per school year. When scheduling a visit, there is a minimum of at least two presentations (one hour) per school day and a maximum of 16 presentations (eight hours).

We also ask that teachers remain in the room for presentations.
