AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation award of $152,763   

Manna Ministries is extremely honored and feel very blessed to have been awarded a grant of $152,763 from the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation for a second year, to support our “Heart 2 Heart Initiative”, a program that is focused on reducing the incidence of Cardiovascular Disease in Mississippi.  Mississippi ranks number two in the nation for deaths related heart disease.  This grant will be used to screen, educate, encourage, empower, and create an environment of “I can do this” in program participants. Mississippi health statistics can be changed one person at a time.  

Stunning outcome results of first year participants demonstrate the success of the program.  A total of 649 pounds was lost by 70 participants for an average weight loss of 9.27 pounds. Triglycerides were lowered a total of 2,912 points in 72 persons with average loss of 40 points, while LDL was lowered 1,782 points on 73 participants with average of 24 point loss.  Self care management is a core focus of the program.
