"Christ Deliverance Ministry is dedicated to fighting obesity,” said Cynthia Ringo, pastor of Christ Deliverance Ministry. “With continual health awareness, in addition to ongoing education about exercise and proper healthy eating habits, we can make dramatic changes in people's lives. We hope to capitalize on our mission to transform the St. Louis community by inspiring, leading and supporting those who are changing their lives by getting healthy with Mind and Body this year and for years to come.”
This year, Mind and Body welcomes Ronald McDonald Care Mobile’s vision clinic, which will provide free, on-the-spot eye exams and glasses to children. The mobile vision clinic is staffed by licensed optometrists and enables early diagnosis and treatment, which are important for maintaining good vision, eye health and the prevention of vision loss. Children who need glasses can choose from a variety of new frames displayed in the mobile unit, and glasses will likely be provided at point of service. Mind and Body will also feature a youth fun run and various vendors spotlighting healthy lifestyle choices.
Representatives from DePaul Hospital, a sponsor of Mind and Body, will be on hand offering free health screenings, such as cholesterol checks. Mind and Body is also sponsored by Whole Foods Market and Qdoba.
