COMPLETING YOUR HEALTH WITH CHIP
Kevin Jackson, CEO & Cathy McDonald of Sanitarium meet with UK CHIP staff
23rd May 2013
Rebranded the Complete Health Improvement Project (CHIP), exciting times are ahead for the CHIP programme in the UK. The global rights for the programme have been acquired by the South Pacific Division and are administered by Sanitarium Health Food Company, Australia's premier health food provider and producers of the 'So Good' brand in the UK. Personnel from Sanitarium have been in discussion with the Adventist CHIP Association UK & Ireland (ACA), and Directors from the Trans-European Division and the British Union Conference regarding the future administration of the programme in the UK.
A meeting took place at the BUC offices on Friday, 12 April, when Kevin Jackson, CEO of Sanitarium and Cathy McDonald, Managing Director of Sanitarium's Health & Wellbeing Services gave a stimulating overview of the totally revised Complete Health Improvement Project. The updated programme includes new online video sessions and literature.
Electronic and social media have been utilised to promote the programme, and registration and purchasing participants' materials can now be done via the Internet.
Stephen Cooper, TED Health Ministries director; Sharon Platt-McDonald, BUC Health Ministries director, Rose and Ismael Gomez, Director and Secretary of the ACA were joined by Elsie Staple, Health Ministries director for the SEC and Lil and Irving Saunders, Health sponsors for the Welsh Mission.
Those present at the meeting were very excited about the changes that have taken place and the potential for the new programme. The next stage is the training of facilitators, scheduled for September 2013. Pilot programmes will then be run through to spring 2014 prior to rolling out the programme across the UK.
