Seventh-day Adventist Church recently released a social media campaign on
healthful living for members to share with their churches and the public.
The “Facts with Hope” campaign offers 12 one-minute videos that
share tips on the importance of physical activity, healthy eating, maintaining
healthy relationships and gratitude. The one-minute spots can be viewed
individually, shown to groups and churches, embedded into websites and shared
through social media.
“This is a
great way to share our messages on health, which have been backed up by
scientific study,” said Katia Reinert, North American Division Health
Ministries director. “We want people to know evidence-based ways of how to live
healthier, happier lives.”
church has promoted healthful living since the denomination was established
more than 150 years ago. In recent decades, Adventists have been featured in
books and magazines for longevity, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health
is helping fund extensive research on what makes Adventists one of the longest
living people groups ever studied. In 2011, the Pan American Health
Organization established a collaboration with the Adventist Church to help
implement the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals at grassroots levels
throughout North America and South America.
