The biggest event of the year for CHAMPS has traditionally been the Community Health and Men’s Promotion Summit, which has taken place at Clark Atlanta University every September. The event – organized yearly since 1991 – has been a huge collective effort, pulling together a group of health and wellness professionals, from nurses and physicians to nutritionists and personal trainers, who have come to offer their services to hundreds of people in the community, free of charge. This event has serviced community members who might not otherwise have access to essential health services, and has provided help and life-saving information for those who often need it the most.
Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions placed on large groups of people gathering, CHAMPS has modified its outreach operations in 2020. In lieu of one large event, we now arrange a quarterly health clinic with changing themes and screenings. Some services offered in the past include screening for blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol. We also offer PSA and COVID-19 tests at every clinic. The clinics have been very well received and we plan to continue providing our community with this service for the foreseeable future.
Unless otherwise noted, the clinics are held at the premises of Midtown Urology (1924 Piedmont Rd NE). Due to the limited number of participants for each clinic, pre-registration is required. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT WALK-INS. If you are interested in participating in a clinic, click here for a clinic schedule. Register for the clinic by emailing us at [email protected] or by calling 404 941 8692, ext. 103 and leaving a detailed message with your name and preferred appointment time. Please note, that we cannot guarantee you the preferred time slot.
