LUMBERTON, N.C. – Weight loss is the most popular New Year’s resolution being made by North Carolinians and people around the country, according to new data from the University of Scranton. The goal of being healthier is even making its way into churches around the state, through a program sponsored by the North Carolina Council of Churches.
Willona Stallings, Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW) state coordinator, says reaching people through their faith is a great way to spread a message of health. “Church is where large numbers of people gather. We have an opportunity to make a difference as it relates to improving the health of all North Carolinians, including people of faith.”
