Community Outreach

Sentara Martha Jefferson provides mission-driven community outreach to support the health needs of underserved persons and to improve the overall health and well-being of our community.

We offer programs aimed at improving community health and to detect early onset of illness and disease. To support this objective, Sentara Martha Jefferson established its Sentara Starr Hill Health Center, located at the Jefferson School City Center.

Sentara Starr Hill Health Center provides services free of charge to clients looking to live a healthier lifestyle curated for them. We focus on providing and supporting sustainable lifestyle changes to help prevent and manage chronic diseases such as, but not limited to, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Clients have the opportunity to attend cooking classes, group sessions, and other supportive services free of charge. If you are interested in more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 434 984-6220434 984-6220.
