It is only eleven months until the 2nd Global Conference on Health & Lifestyle will be held in Geneva, Switzerland. The theme of this conference is very timely and one of significant focus in the public health world. Many who attended the 2009 Conference have reported their experience and learning greatly strengthened their work.
Mark your calendars now for July 7-12, 2014. You will not want to miss this conference! Whether you are a community health worker, health professional, administrator, educator, pastor, or interested layperson you will find learning experiences to help improve your competence in addressing some of the major threats to global health and well-being.
There will be informative and inspirational plenary presentations by experts from around the world. Here is just a sampling of the more than 20 breakout sessions to be available:
- Mental and Emotional Health
- Family Health
- Kids Health
- Women's Health
- Health in the Educational System
- Lifestyle Interventions that Work
- Dental Health
- Nutrition and NCDs
- Addictions, including Smoking Cessation
- HIV/AIDS Interventions
Exciting, life-changing intervention resources to enhance health will be launched, including Breathe Free 2.0. Friday's sessions will focus on training for Comprehensive Health Ministry--the special tools God gave the Seventh-day Adventist Church which are tried, tested, and yet sadly underused. A special Sabbath day of worship and commitment with Dr. Ted Wilson and Dr. Lowell Cooper will conclude the conference at Collonges.
