Building Organizational Capacity

Partnership Development and Community Relations

Fox Chase Cancer Center's Office of Health Communications and Health Disparities creates and maintains close relationships with other healthcare providers, community-based human service organizations, religious groups, business organizations, elected officials and community boards. The Partnership Development and Community Relations Program creates an opportunity for community organizations to embrace Fox Chase's mission of reducing the burden of human cancer and assures the good health and well-being of the community at large by "working and learning together."

Body and Soul

Body and Soul is a wellness program for African American churches that empowers church members to eat healthier and be more physically active. The program is supported by four pillars: a committed pastor; church activities that promote a healthy lifestyle; a church environment that supports healthy eating; and peer counseling to provide individual support for healthy eating. Together, the pillars work to create an environment where church members can take steps to improve health and lower their risk for chronic disease. Training and financial support is available through a statewide dissemination of Body & Soul that is supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and coordinated by Fox Chase Cancer Center.  Currently, all available positions have been filled.  Additional opportunities for training and financial support may also be available through a statewide dissemination of Body and Soul that is supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and coordinated by Fox Chase Cancer Center.

For more information about Body and Soul in Pennsylvania, please call the Body and Soul Program Coordinator, Danielle Crookes at 215-214-3701.
