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).

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.

About CHAMPS

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.
