In collabortion with the Chattanooga Housing Authority and various partner groups around the Chattanooga area, PACT4 will be hosting a Health Fair at Boyton Towers.
Like many cities, Chattanooga as a community is attempting to address the broad differences in socio-economic difference especially in terms of health care. Both the projects of PACT4 and IPCP-AGES have developed a series of educational initiatives to benefit those with limited access to such resources. One of those major initiatives is to host a health fair for those within the high-risk community who may have no access to health advice or services. This initiative proposes a bi-annual health fair in various locations around the city. These locations are picked based on accessibility by populations who would benefit most from these educational services. Both projects have a strong and directed commitment to fostering intercollaborative education and practice within their community. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, School of Nursing has collaborated with other academic and professional colleagues to provide these health care fair educational programs.
