What is the Health Ministry?
The Health Ministry was created by a local electrophysiology lab nurse in conjunction with the New Castle Presbytery to provide health-related information to the NCP Community. Health and wellness is a topic pertinent to all and health problems affect everyone. The search for accurate health-related information tends to spark many questions and concerns. In hopes of alleviating some stress and anxiety surrounding this dilemma, Health Ministry provides credible, accurate educational references about health topics applicable to all age groups monthly.
