Photos that HEAL

LiveWell at Worship teamed up with Dr. Lynette Gibson and Dr. Toshua Kennedy, both of USC Upstate Mary Black School of Nursing, to utilize pictures and captions to demonstrate Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) opportunities through the Photos that HEAL project.

“We wanted the participants to have the opportunity to let their photographs speak for them,” Kennedy explained. “We gave them assignments each time we met, and that first assignment was to take photographs that represented healthy eating to them. The next assignment was to take photographs of what represented active living to them.”

Ten participants, representing 4 LiveWell at Worship congregations, were actively engaged in this project. With generous sponsorship from Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, the photos and captions will be displayed on pop up banners to create a meaningful gallery that can travel around the county. This moving display shares the impact that healthy foods and physical activity has on our daily lives as well as the tremendous transformational opportunities that are presented when we work to actively HEAL our bodies.

Thanks again to Bon Secours St. Francis Health System and all of the participants in the Photos that HEAL project.
