ATLANTA – October 15, 2018 – Clark Atlanta University’s Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development (CCRTD) is hosting its seventh annual “Harvest for Health” Wellness Fair to raise health awareness in Atlanta communities Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Greater Bethany Baptist Church, 786 Thurmond Street N.W., Atlanta, GA 30314.

The free public event, hosted in partnership with the English Avenue and Vine City Ministerial Alliance (EAVCMA), comes on the heels of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and will provide information, education, prostate cancer screenings and other health screenings to empower citizens to address health and wellness disparities.
“The annual Harvest for Health Wellness Fair allows us to continue our goal to increase awareness and prevention in issues that disproportionately affect the African-American community,” CCRTD, Director Shafiq A. Khan, Ph.D., says. “We are especially proud of our partnership with the English Avenue and Vine City Ministerial Alliance, because it allows us to advance our advocacy directly to families here in our own neighboring communities.”
