The Legendary Health Initiative
EDUCATION | PREVENTION | AWARENESS | SUPPORT
The mission of the Legendary Health Initiative is to educate, prevent, increase the awareness, support and improve the health for under served residents of the City of Atlanta and surrounding Metro through community partnerships.
The community comes together annually during the Legendary Awards Weekend at Greenbriar Mall in Southwest Atlanta. Established by the Legendary Awards Foundation in 2014, the Legendary Health Initiative is a collaborative partnership with Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority and the Atlanta Black Nurses Association. Children, youth and families living in underserved communities around Atlanta with a lack of access to quality healthcare are provided with free health screenings, wellness exams, mental health evaluations, nutritional products, educational literature, seminars, and fitness assessments.
We truly believe that Together we make a difference!
Providing children, youth, and families with the skills and knowledge that will arm them with ample knowledge to make practical health decisions
Increasing the focus on prevention allows us to help improve the health of our community residents, quality of life and wellness at every stage of life
Building the awareness of health risks conditions and disease if gone untreated or
pre-screened allows our community
residents to be proactive in taking action Bringing together stakeholders who play
important roles in promoting high quality care and lending a hand of service and
support to aid the underserved
We are so proud to be sponsored and supported by the The Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority (FDHA) and The Atlanta Black Nurses Association (ABNA) for the last 3 years.
