This program is designed to provide education and training about health and lifestyle to our church members and our community. The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) - formerly Coronary Health Improvement Project - is an affordable, lifestyle enrichment program designed to reduce disease risk factors through the adoption of better health habits and appropriate lifestyle modifications.
