A Nashville health clinic, in collaboration with NFL Alumni Tennessee, St. Luke CME Church, and the Tennessee CEAL Program of Meharry Medical College, is offering free dental services, diapers, and vaccines on Saturday, April 20. The event will take place from 12 to 4 p.m. at St. Luke CME Church in the Buena Vista area of Nashville. In addition to health services, there will be music, free food, and exercise classes available for participants. Former Tennessee Titans players will be on hand to sign autographs and take photos with fans.

A variety of vaccines will be available for event attendees, including those for shingles, flu, RSV, Hepatitis B, HPV, pneumococcal, Tdap, and COVID-19, provided by Kroger. The goal of the event is to promote healthy lifestyles and improve access to healthcare for the Nashville community. This initiative is part of the NFL Alumni’s “Gear Up Tennessee” program, which encourages vaccinations and healthy choices like exercise, led by former NFL players.

The event is supported by organizations such as the Conference of National Black Churches, Dedicated Senior Medical Center, Help to Moms, the Nashville Diaper Connection, and the CEO Roundtable on Cancer. Former NFL players who will be attending the event include Al Smith, Brad Hopkins, Derrick Mason, Albert Haynesworth, Joey Kent, and Neil O’Donnell.
