The premier national conference building the capacity of African American faith organizations to become community hubs for health awareness, education, and support.

Our goal is to equip churches and congregational health ministries to become community hubs for health awareness, treatment, and support to help reverse and eliminate the impact of health disparities in Black communities.

About The Virtual Conference

The Balm In Gilead Inc. will host the 10th Annual Healthy Churches 2030 Conference on the vFairs Virtual Conference platform. vFairs is a visually rich online platform that gives our attendees from all over the world the chance to interact virtually with the nation's top public health and faith leaders and get information and resources they can use in their ministerial and community programs.
Sessions will be live with an interactive Q & A session unless otherwise noted. Symposiums and Institutes will take place via vFairs. There is no need to download any additional equipment to access the session. You will be allowed to select which sessions you'd like to attend virtually. It is up to you to decide which sessions interest you in a given time block and to attend those sessions as desired.
The Healthy Churches 2030 Conference Best Practice Awards Ceremony will highlight congregations from across the United States that are doing extraordinary work in health promotion.
Your virtual conference registration includes access to all plenary and virtual session recordings approximately 24 hours after the session concludes. Don't worry; you can view any sessions you missed as soon as the recordings for those sessions are made available on vFairs. Note that not all sessions are being recorded.
