Faith and Community Health Summit this fall in Atlanta

Whether you have a successful health ministry or community health program or want to start one, this Summit has something for you! 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is hosting a Tri-Regional Faith and Community Health Summit in October 2013. This event will gather thousands of faith and community leaders from 17 states to summit locations in Atlanta(Oct 3-5), Dallas(Oct 24-26), and Kansas City, (Oct 24-26) for one purpose, “Building Healthier Communities through Education, Empowerment, and Engagement.”  

Participants will have the opportunity to develop one-year action plans to improve their personal health, the health of their organizations and communities, and the well-being of future generations. They will also join a network of organizations who will share best practices, successes, and lessons learned.

The Regional Council of Churches of Atlanta and  C.H.I.P., the mental health coalition of which we are a part, are working on this summit and presenting there.

The Atlanta location is St. Philip A.M.E. Church, 240 Candler Roadm Atlanta, GA 30317
