Enmarket Encourage Health

Enmarket Encourage Health Series

For the past five years Enmarket has partnered with Healthy Savannah to bring the community the Encourage Health Education Series. The lecture series features four free lunchtime presentations from respected experts who share insights on nutrition and fitness plus general tips for healthy living. At each presentation a local non-profit is presented an Encourage Health Grant for the organizations commitment to health and healthy initiatives.

We’re inviting the public to nominate nonprofit organizations in the Savannah area to be one of four grant recipients in the 2019 Enmarket Encourage Health Educational Series.

Nominations can be submitted through a Facebook or Instagram posting, and each winner will receive a $1,000 grant during the health series.

Any Savannah area registered 501©3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote healthy living, active lifestyles or nutritional education is eligible for consideration.

To apply:

  • Tag Enmarket in your social media nominations;
  • Use the hashtag #EncourageHealth2019.

Entries must include how the nonprofit organization inspires or promotes healthy living. The total number of “likes,” comments and shares on individual posts will be considered for the final selection.

Current Call for Speakers

Healthy Savannah and Enmarket are accepting speaker nominations for the 2019 Enmarket Encourage Health Educational Series, the sixth year for the program that features sessions on nutrition, fitness and tips for living a healthy life.

Program topics have covered a wide range of subject matter discussed by respected experts in the health field. Popular themes have included the correlation between heart health and a healthy lifestyle, blue zones, the benefits of a plant-based diet and other similar issues.

Anyone who has an idea for a health-oriented educational speech should submit the concept to Paula Kreissler at paula@healthysavannah.org. The deadline is Tuesday, January 15 2019.

Applications should include the presenter’s name, title, company and contact information, along with the proposed topic, a description of the speech, sample articles or videos of previous presentations and any supporting materials to demonstrate expertise. Please attach a biography and headshot. All submissions will be reviewed by the Encourage Health advisory board.

Because the events are non-commercial and center on offering health education to the Savannah community, speakers are asked to volunteer their time and not promote any specific product or service in their presentation.

Selected speakers will be announced in March, and the 2019 lunch-and-learn series will kick off on Tuesday, April 30. The other lectures will be held on the following Tuesdays: June 25, August 27 and October 29.
