Our Testimonials

“Outstanding program… THANK YOU! We are living in a different era now where dialysis and transplant are not certain outcomes if you have kidney disease… [Today’s event] is just the start of prevention… please keep at it!”

I am happy to publicly express my appreciation to HEAL for partnering with us to conduct the Health Survey for the clients that we serve in DeKalb county. HEAL assumed responsibility to administer, tabulate and present the results of the survey. The survey was comprehensive and supported our ability to prioritize our health & wellness education programs.

Michael Bryant, Executive Director

New Life Community Ministries, Decatur, GA

“The HEAL program is informative and impactful. We were able to receive health information that is unique to our congregation’s demographic. The Congregational Health Survey and detailed report HEAL provided our church will help us reduce and eliminate those targeted health indicators in our demographics by providing resources. The HEAL program not only uncovers health disparities in our community but also provides resources to reduce those disparities. They are invaluable to our Church.”

The House of Hope Atlanta (The Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church)

We’re excited about our partnership with HEAL to bring impactful and relevant health education programs to our congregation and the surrounding community. HEAL understands the culture of the African American faith community and how to engage our congregation in meaningful conversations about chronic diseases, medications and African American participation in clinical trials. HEAL has become part of our church family and we look forward to hosting more HEAL sponsored health education events.
