The Community Health and Mobility Partnership (CHAMP) program began in McDowell County in 2010, but due to the pandemic, CHAMP has been on hold. Now CHAMP is returning for a one-day event on Friday September 23, 2022, at the McDowell Senior Center. CHAMP is a free all-inclusive falls risk screen and assessment provided by professional volunteers, health science students, their college/university faculty, and retired healthcare professionals. All participants must be registered to be included in the falls risk screening program and will need to bring a list of their current medications for review. If you or someone you love would like to know their risk for falls, please contact the McDowell Senior Center at 659-0823 to schedule your appointment on Friday September 23, 2022.
