About Us

Choose of Healthy Life (CHL) ATLANTA

CHL is a response to the disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black communities across the United States. CHL is an initiative to fortify community infrastructure in Atlanta and address the COVID pandemic across Black communities. The goals are to strengthen local networks, increase long-term community resilience and save lives. CHL leverages the power of the Black faith-based houses of worship – the most trusted and respected organization in the Black community – to expand access to COVID-19 testing, contact tracing, vaccines, and other health services in underserved communities. 


Regular testing is critical to addressing COVID-19 disparities in Black communities, which have been hard hit by the COVID crisis. African Americans are 3.5 times more likely to die of COVID than white people, and 7 times more likely to be hospitalized. Testing, even if you do not feel sick, is critical to stopping the spread. The CDC estimates that 40% of COVID-19 cases may be asymptomatic and may unknowingly spread the virus.  As vaccinations increase, so will the asymptomatic spread of this deadly disease
