Abstract

ABSTRACT: Evidence supports that people with higher levels of health literacy report higher levels of wellness. Using the weekly worship service of the faith community as a way to distribute health information is an ideal way to promote congregational knowledge of health issues. This article discusses using the printed church bulletin and other weekly church communications to disseminate parish health tips (PHTs), provides resources for developing PHT, and offers 52 PHT's.
