TEDxGreenvilleSalon November 2011 - Margaret Stephens - Health Within

Margaret Stephens is a community health consultant at Livewell Greenville, a partnership of dozens of public and private organizations that aims to make Greenville County a healthier place to live, work, and play. She has many years experience as a RN and most recently helping communities build healthier lives. As a pilot with LiveWell Greenville, the Long Branch Baptist Church faith community "is making footprints that other churches can follow that can help promote lifestyle choices, making the healthy choice the easier choice," according to Margaret. Pastor Sean Dogan of Long Branch Baptist Church serves Greenville's resurgent Greater Sullivan Community. For years, Pastor Dogan has presided over countless funerals and counseled with many people within his community who succumbed to various preventable, health-related illnesses. He noticed that some of the foods that were served at church functions were foods that have been noted to contribute to various health challenges. Long Branch is now leading a new way forward and providing a shining new example of how other churches and organizations can help promote lifestyle choices that lead to healthier people, healthier families, and healthier communities. It's an "Idea Worth Spreading" happening in the heart of our community. Margaret Stephens works directly with Pastor Dogan and the Long Branch Baptist Church to help them establish and accomplish their healthy living goals. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
