About Take Charge
(Changing HIV & Alcohol Risks to Gain Empowerment)
Take CHARGE seeks to empower Black young adults (ages 18-24) to make better decisions regarding their sexual health, by providing access to HIV testing, condoms and peer-led educational workshops to students attending Morehouse, Clark Atlanta University, Atlanta Metropolitan State College and Albany State University and their surrounding communities.
Project Take CHARGE is a collaboration between Morehouse School of Medicine, Albany State University, Atlanta Metropolitan State College, and Morehouse College. Our community partners include ANIZ, Inc. and NAESM.
