  • 05/14/10 Body &amp; Soul is a wellness program that was developed for African American churches. Body &amp; Soul empowers church members to eat more fruits and vegetables to improve their health and lower their risk for diet related illnesses. Body &amp; Soul works by combining: Pastoral leadership and support Educational activities that teach members skills, help people learn about ways to prevent chronic diseases, and allow church members to try new fruits and vegetables A church environment that supports healthy eating Peer counseling that provides individual support for church members
  • 05/14/10 Body &amp; Soul churches are able to embrace and celebrate good health through healthy eating. Members of Body &amp; Soul churches: Eat more fruits and vegetables each day Learn how health and spirituality are connected Embrace other healthy habits such as eating less fat and being more physically active

  • 05/14/10 African-Americans suffer disproportionately from many of the major health conditions in the U.S. They often get these health conditions earlier, tend to get the worst forms of these diseases, AND usually die earlier from them. African-Americans are more likely than ANY other group to report being in fair or poor health. African-Americans also have a lower life expectancy than Caucasians
  • 05/14/10 Lifestyle refers to the choices we make. These choices can impact our health, either reducing our risk for chronic disease, or increasing our risk.
  • 05/14/10 Body &amp; Soul is based on NCI funded research conducted in North Carolina (Black Churches United for Better Health) and at Emory University (Eat for Life Trial). The American Cancer Society and NCI worked with the researchers from UNC and Emory to translate this research into a program that could be delivered on a wide scale
  • 05/14/10 We know that the program has been successful when - Participants eat more fruits and vegetables. But, there are other important measures of success too, including: changes in church policies and practices related to foods served in the church increased awareness, knowledge, and self-efficacy of healthy eating among church members established collaborative relationships between the community partners and the church. These relationships are important, since there often are other programs and services that might be beneficial for church members.
