The Chronic Disease Prevention Program works with local churches and places of faith to help them incorporate health programs, activities and policies to improve the health of their parishioners. One such program is the Body & Soul Program.
Other programs can be developed and tailored for local churches and places of faith. Our staff can provide support and technical assistance to help develop programs, activities and policies that address the health needs of an individual congregation.
The project seeks to eliminate health disparities and increase access to preventive services using cultural and linguistically appropriate health education programs and resources.
The overall project aims to reach Hispanic and African American residents; however, it is available to any church in Southern Nevada.
