New hypertension wellness program for men.

Jacob's Journey is a new eight-week wellness program for men living with or seeking to prevent hypertension, developed by the IPNRC. Based on the Biblical story of Jacob from the book of Genesis, this program is not meant to take the place of treatment by a physician, rather, it offers additional help in making desirable lifestyle changes. These changes include walking and/or adding other exercise on a daily basis, dietary changes, and assistance with finding new ways to reduce the impact of stress on one's life, through prayer and other interventions.

Fellowship is an important component of this program, which includes lesson plans, bulletin blurbs, newsletter articles, e-mail messages, a poster, bulletin board, sign-up sheet, evaluation form--everything you need to make this program happen (except the men!) Available from the IPNRC on CD for $35 postpaid.
