Neighborhood Health holds an annual breakfast each year to raise funds and to raise awareness of the services of Neighborhood Health to the Nashville/Davidson County community. Annually over two hundred healthcare and business leaders, as well as donors and friends attend this event. This year we will be joined by the mayor of Nashville, David Briley.
This year the program will focus on our community-based programs that address infectious diseases of increasing concern in our community. This includes HIV screening which is available at all clinics and to all of our clients. In addition, we continue to develop HIV services at several Neighborhood Health clinics as well as offering PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) to those at risk for HIV infection at all of our thirteen sites.
Because we serve over 5,000 people experiencing homelessness and other at risk populations we now play a major role in preventing the spread of Hepatitis A in Nashville. In the coming months, Neighborhood Health will expand its ability to test and treat Hepatitis C, a deadly viral infection, which is a growing problem due to the opioid epidemic.
We greatly appreciate your on-going support of Neighborhood Health's services and hope you will be able to attend this year's event!
Special Thanks to this Year's Sponsors!
