Peoples First Baptist Church Spearheads H.E.A.L Movement

Southeast Queens and beyond to benefit from a new concept: church and wellness center to "Inspire NY" and promote preventative care amidst diabetes, cancer and stress "epidemic."

Jamaica, NY, October 13, 2018 --( People’s First Baptist Church launches its “Inspire NY” church and wellness pavilion with a weekly brunch series to teach health conscious residents how to use foods and plants to improve healthy naturally. H.E.A.L. stands for Holistic Education Aiding in Longevity. By offering a combination of worship, education and fellowship over food, INSPIRE NY hopes to address the growing desire for natural ways to improve health and well-being.

The H.E.A.L. Sunday Brunch Series is based on the simple premise of bringing people together on a regular basis and teaching them simple ways that can improve their quality of life. Ultimately it draws focus on making healthier lifestyle choices.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number one health problem in the world is, surprisingly, not a virus or a disease but depression – an affliction, which is linked to sleeplessness, stress, and obesity. More locally, according to a community health profile released by the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Jamaica residents are 55 percent more likely to die from diabetes than their fellow New Yorkers, and 15 percent more likely to die from heart disease or violence. The Inspire NY Pavilion will focus on preventative care, healthy eating and nutritional education and resources that promote great health and vitality.

Each Sunday, from 12 noon to 3 pm, join naturopathic doctor, Rev. Simone Lord and other wellness practitioners, at 115-42 Sutphin Blvd. Jamaica, NY 11434. These weekly events build community, teaches way to improve health, physical, mental as well as spiritual and provide diverse resources for all that attend.

“My directive is to help others to live healthier, wealthier and happier lives,” says founder Dr. Simone Lord. “Our Sunday Brunch is a refreshing, healthy, delicious, learning experience to strengthen the mind, body and spirit.”
