2014 CHAMPS Men’s Health Fair
The 2014 CHAMPS Health Fair event will be held on September 20, 2014 at the Georgia World Congress Center from 10 am to 3 pm in Building C (Rooms C111-C114).
The Community Health and Men’s Promotion Summit (CHAMPS) is a nonprofit organization that works to raise awareness of the importance of early detection and prevention concerning health issues for men, especially prostate cancer.
The organization’s goal is to encourage men to make healthy lifestyle choices, as well as, address their healthcare needs. It exists to help eradicate lines that enable health disparities in this world to exist.
Although it is a lofty goal they believe by providing this safety net it can pursue their mission on all fronts: education, awareness, and prevention. Their initial and primary focus is Georgia, a state that ranks 9th in Prostate Cancer death*, with plans to expand operations to other states.
CHAMPS is a collaborative project with a consortium of private and public entities interested in addressing men’s health concerns by raising awareness of the importance of early detection and disease treatment. These include the Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority, QDX Pathology, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Emory Healthcare, Georgia Prostate Cancer Coalition, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Midtown Urology, Midtown Urology Health & Education Foundation, and many more.
Currently, the Community Health and Men’s Promotion Summit is looking for donations from exhibitors and sponsors to enhance the experience of CHAMPS for our participants. With a donation, exhibitors and sponsors are able to have booths that the attendees can visit to receive additional information regarding medical practices, specific health conditions, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, as well as other resources available in their community.
