Crossover Ministries held a graduation ceremony for the 94th Lay Health Promotor Class on Thursday, November 12, in Welborne’s sanctuary.  The fourteen graduates representing 5 nations are now equipped to be health advocates in their communities.  They met at Welborne for 40 hours of class instruction over the last ten weeks.

From the Crossover Ministries website, “This innovative, award-winning program recognizes that lack of health knowledge leads to chronic illness, life-threatening complications and unnecessary, early death and seeks to help people take greater control over their health and their lives.  The LHP program focuses on prevention of disease and complications related to chronic illness, recognition of early warning signs of illness, and accessing and navigating resources that are available for the low-income and the uninsured. ”
