The Southeast Tennessee Health Consortium (SETHC) serves as the 501C-3 for community events focusing on health/wellness, youth leadership development/education and other events to improve the quality of life for all residents of the communities and act as a catalyst for community development for the Chattanooga neighborhoods.

 Major FREE community events under the SETHC umbrella includes:

  • Annual Hamilton County Minority Health Fair
  • Annual Boys Leadership Summit
  • Annual Power to End Stroke Educational Symposium (in partnership with Erlanger and American Heart Association)
  • Move for the “Health” of it! 5K Run/Walk – set for July 26, 2014


In 2002, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. partnered together in conjunction with the 28th Community Develop Corporation to focus on men’s health issues by providing a free health fair – Hamilton County Minority Health Fair.  The primary focus was geared toward prostate exams, blood pressure and other educational services for men.  In 2004, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. joined this partnership and added a focus on women’s and children’s health.

The goals of the MHF are:

    1. Educate attendees about preventative measures for other disease states that impact the minorities at alarming rates.
    2. Allow participants earlier entry into the health care arena and possibly decrease major health care disparities. 
    3. Educate and Empower all attendees to close the health gap

In 2013, the 11th Annual Minority Health Fair attendance exceeded 3,000 and over 125 vendors provided FREE educational and screenings health services. We estimate that over 15,000 of people have received FREE health serves at the MHF since inception.
