Community Church Health Partnership Outreach


The VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital Community Church Health Partnership’s (CCHP) annual symposium and luncheon recently offered community members an educational wellness program, coordinated by CMH Occupational Health and Wellness Services’ Donna Overton, LPN, COHC, BAT, SAMI-DOT.

"We were thrilled to have so many come out today," Donna Overton said. "This partnership continues to be a strong part of our community because of the support we have in our area churches."

Lucero Vazquez, Certified Exercise Physiologist, provided information on general health and also demonstrated chair exercises during the event at the C.A.R.E Building’s Education Center.

Chaplain Joanne Bedford followed with a segment on the “Power of Laughter.”

CCHP provides an innovative way to deliver health care information to people in the faith community. 

This non-traditional partnership provides people easy access to up-to-date information on important health topics in the supportive environment of their church. 

The CCHP originated in 1999 at the request of residents in Mecklenburg, Lunenburg and Brunswick Counties and reaches more than 70 churches.

If your church is interested in partnering with CCHP, please contact Donna Overton at (434) 584-5390.
