Atlanta Choose Healthy Life: COVID-19 Education, Vaccination & Testing Partnership Results
Choose Healthy Life (CHL) is a national response to the disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black communities across the United States.
Atlanta Choose Healthy Life is an initiative to fortify community infrastructure in Atlanta and address the COVID-19 pandemic across Black communities. In partnership with United Way of Greater Atlanta and Ebenezer Baptist Church, BCDI-Atlanta facilitates the implementation of Atlanta CHL with a group of 10 total partner churches.
The goals of CHL are to:
Strengthen local networks.
Increase long-term community resilience.
During the 9 months of the Atlanta Choose Healthy Life project, April - December 2021, a total of 10,745 COVID-19 vaccinations and 7,234 COVID-19 tests were administered. Through our education and outreach efforts, we reached 1,762,158 people! Our staff and partners ROCK!
Thank you to our partners at United Way of Greater Atlanta for entrusting BCDI-Atlanta to lead this essential work!
