African American Diabetes Faith Based Initiative
Eli Lilly Partnership
Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International and Eli Lilly (Lilly) have partnered for the purpose of the African American Diabetes Faith Based Initiative. It is our aim to communicate to appropriate audiences about the incidence and prevalence of Type 2 diabetes in the African American community.
This is an effort to educate the community about general diabetes disease information; including healthy habits and lifestyle, progressive nature of illness, that treatment options are available and importance of adhering to prescribed regimens. The goal is to engage attendees to potentially seek health care and how to help empower them to manage their condition.
The core of the African American Diabetes Faith Based Initiative involves a series of speaker events at National and regional events in numerous markets across the contiguous USA. These speaker events are supported by licensed medical professionals and physicians who onboard audiences to a path for living well, which in turn allows us to LiveFull.
