The Be Better campaign is part of an ongoing effort to improve the health of families and communities, especially those that are at greater risk of obesity, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. Be Better was created to inspire and motivate individuals and families to adopt small changes for a healthier tomorrow through a simple message: “You don’t have to be perfect, just be better.”
Be Better Where You
We assist local faith institutions serving African-American and Latino communities to create healthier environments in places of worship. We support our faith institutions in promoting a healthy lifestyle to their respective congregations through nutrition and physical activity promotion that nourishes the spirit as well as the body.
We promote the establishment of health ministry teams or auxiliaries and assist by:
- Giving tips on how to serve more fruits and vegetables at faith-related events.
- Working with faith leadership to share inspiring testimonies centered around health.
- Suggesting ways physical activity and/or nutrition education can be added to existing programs.
- Finding opportunities to reach different age groups through the congregation.
