Annual Men's Health Screenings

Each year, the Southside and Dodson Ave. Community Health Centers, in partnership with 100 Black Men of Chattanooga, provide free health screenings for men. Screenings include PSA, blood pressure, BMI, HIV testing, nutritional counseling, and more.

Erlanger's community health centers have conducted these screenings for the past 17 years and they remain very popular and highly sought-out.
