I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. - Romans 12:1-2
The Health Awareness Ministry (HAM) aims to prepare the hearts and minds of men and women to be receptive to God's call. As health educators and advocates, we promote the will of God by teaching and evangelizing in this present age on various healthcare treatment and prevention topics.
A wide range of health conditions and causes have touched many of our lives. We typically hear about the big ones, such as Breast Cancer Awareness Month or World AIDS Day. But what about lesser-known awareness campaigns, such as Occupational Health Month, National School Breakfast Week, or Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Awareness Day? Did you know they existed?
Awareness months, weeks, and days are important. They allow people with certain health conditions — along with their loved ones, advocacy organizations, and support groups — to rally around a common cause and lend support. Educational, fundraising, and support events are often held during these times. They can bring people together for a great cause.
Want to know which events are coming up, or support an awareness campaign you’re less familiar with? This 2018 calendar of health awareness months, weeks, and days offers a complete look at all the ways you can support these initiatives.
