OUR BODY IS THY TEMPLE
Faith, music, health, and emotions will all come together for an up-close view through the eyes of
the congregation. This two-part series will focus on the health disparities that exist in the African
American community and work with specific members from different predominantly black,
community-centered churches, who have the desire to live a healthier life.
We will help them understand their current health status and with the support of their
congregation, pastors, and local community, we will educate, inspire, and help these members
change the course of their lives. This impactful, first-of-its-kind series will focus on dietary and
daily living needs and highlight the cultural disparities that exist in the black community.
