Since 1987, the Church Health Center has sought to reclaim
the Church’s biblical commitment
to care for our bodies and our spirits by
providing medical services, prevention programs and health education to the
Memphis area. In the past 28 years, many health professionals started their
work in medicine and wellness here at the Center, as participants of the Clinic
Scholar Class 2014-15
Now known as Church Health Scholars, the program is a
one-year fellowship that combines practical work experience with academic and
faith-based opportunities to serve underserved populations in Memphis. By
providing early exposure to honorable work through the Scholars program, the
Center aims to provide a firm foundation for Scholars to build professional and
personal values, work ethic and perspective.
Scholars come from all over the country and have a variety
of educational backgrounds, but are all united in the call to help provide
healthcare options to Memphis’ uninsured populations. Scholars work alongside
the Center staff to address pressing community health issues in caring,
compassionate ways. They also receive special learning opportunities through
one-on-one mentoring, lunch & learn sessions, and individual projects.
