risk factors that contribute to obesity and chronic
conditions associated with unhealthy lifestyles
2. Implement strategies to reduce these health risks

ministries charged with conducting and
promoting health and wellness sessions
4. Establish medical homes for uninsured
congregants

initiate chronic disease self management
strategies.
