Pressbox (Press Release) -
The Nashville Church of Scientology is welcoming the community to an event this year to observe World Health Day.
The Church of Scientology supports the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW), which has as its mission to educate people about the dangerous effects of drugs so they understand and can make informed choices on the subject. The Tennessee chapter, Drug-Free Tennessee (DFT) is planning an event to observe World Health Day where the organization will have plenty of educational materials to hand for anyone wanting more information on the topic. Organizers have partnered with community members who have information to share on healthier living.
Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church of Scientology, says, “There is a need in our communities to educate everyone on how to be healthy—this includes staying away from illegal drugs, but there are many other aspects to health that people should know,” he said.
Rev. Fesler says the event will feature audio-visual pieces, interactive presentations and more to keep the audience engaged. “We’re helping people learn about being healthy in a fun, upbeat way,” says Rev. Fesler.
In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) held the First World Health Assembly. The Assembly decided to celebrate April 7 of each year, with effect from 1950, as the World Health Day. World Health Day is held to mark WHO's founding, and is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year. This year, the theme is #HealthForAll, and the Nashville Church of Scientology plans to incorporate this theme into the event.
