This week on The Local Take I speak with Karla Porch from the Empowerment Resource Center. I ask her about their event Take Charge. Get Tested on June 27th between 12pm -  4pm at Historic Hurt Park in downtown Atlanta to celebrate National HIV Testing Day.

She speaks about the ability to take an HIV test and get your results in a few minutes. She shares information about the services that they provide to assist anyone who test positive or negative. 

This week on The Local Take I speak with Robert Hydrick, Communications Manager with the Georgia Office of Highway Safety about the new Hands Free Georgia Act which becomes law on July 1st. 

Hydrick explains some activities that we see everyday are currently illegal. The new law makes it illegal for your phone to touch any part of your body while you are driving. 

Similar laws in other states have resulted in decreases in traffic deaths by a minimum of 10%, with some states experiencing decreases up to 20%. 

June is Men's Health Month. The CheckUp with Dr. Courtney Shelton, MD, welcomes Kevin Humphries, who is the Men's Health Coordinator for the Dekalb County Board of Health. Together they talk about how men can take control of their health and catch health issues before they become chronic or life-threatening. They touch on topics including prostate health, cardiovascular health, diet and nutrition, sexual health and mental health issues. Real men take control of their lives and their health so that they are there for their families through the years.

Belle is appearing on this weekend's edition of UNSUNG and stopped by to chat about that and her musical legacy. She also talked about what the rest of 2018 holds for her and much more. (Click here for the full conversation).
