And The Award Goes To…


By Yvette Crenshaw

Not only is Christ Community Health Services celebrating its 15th anniversary, they are also celebrating the fact that they received the Tennessee Medical Association (TMA) Community Service Award for their outstanding impact in the community.

Executive Director Burt Waller accepted the award on behalf of Christ Community in Nashville, TN where the TMA’s held their annual meeting.  Waller had this to say, “Going where the need is greatest has been part of our mission since day one. We are currently celebrating our 15th anniversary, so this is a great way to kick off the celebration.”

Founded in 1995, Christ Community Health Services is a not-for-profit, Christian organization focused on fulfilling the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of the underprivileged, medically underserved population of Memphis. Geographically diverse communities throughout Memphis are served by seven medical/dental clinics, mobile medical services and six outreach programs.
