Black pastors lend their support to local health and wellness program

Springfield, MO— Area black pastors were called upon to help spread the message about the importance of taking care of your health. Thirteen pastors representing predominantly black congregations in the Springfield area were called together on a Saturday morning to hear about the SpringMo Black Wellness Initiative. The initiative is a multi-year strategy designed to produce better health outcomes for black residents living in Springfield.
As the agenda was laid out, several pastors shared personal experiences about their own health challenges and pledged their support to encourage their members to participate in the upcoming kick-off event scheduled for Saturday, September 17, 2022.
Organizers of the breakfast Melesha Bailey and Latasha Harris agreed, “it was strategically vital to get the support of these influencers and use their leadership to impact our community in a positive way.”
