Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW), an initiative of the North Carolina Council of Churches, is designed to bridge issues of faith, health, and justice. In order to live out the example of Jesus Christ – someone who dedicated his life to healing the sick, guiding the lost, and comforting the downcast – this initiative seeks to provide people of faith with the tools necessary to lead healthier more fulfilling lives. We believe that “health” is defined by many factors that support holistic well-being. This belief is what inspired the development of the four cornerstones of healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco cessation, and mental health to guide us in our work. By improving the health and well-being of people of faith, we hope to impact the larger community and ultimately reduce the health care burden on our state. Thanks to The Duke Endowment for making this work possible!
