Event description

Description

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. You are welcome to come to the venue Saturday and register on-site. Thank you!


There’s an epidemic of diabetes across the nation and the numbers for Houston are staggering:

  • 750,000 with diabetes (and almost 200,000 of them undiagnosed)
  • An additional 1.8 million with prediabetes
  • Total annual costs for Houston in 2015 of $6.8 billion

Many members of your house of faith are likely to have diabetes or have seen diabetes in their families and friends. But we’re not powerless to fight it! Communities of faith can provide support and assistance, while helping to empower their congregants – and we can help!

Interfaith Ministries, Institute for Spirituality and Health, and Cities Changing Diabetes – Houston are seeking health and wellness ministry leaders from across the Houston metropolitan area to join us on Saturday, October 29th, for a stimulating half-day of information sharing and discussion about:

• How diabetes impacts Houstonians

• The special role that faith-based organizations play in increasing awareness of diabetes screening, prevention, detection and care
• Diabetes prevention programs and diabetes education resources available in Houston communities
• How you can participate in the Faith and Diabetes Weekend planned for November 11-13th at which you’ll receive specific programs and tools for your congregation to use in fighting Houston’s epidemic of diabetes

You’ll hear from leaders from a wide range of denominations across Houston and learn from their experiences addressing diabetes prevention and care with their congregants.
