The Annual Appeal is Avondale College of Higher Education’s largest giving campaign. Money raised is allocated to a needs-based project. Seventh-day Adventist churches in the South Pacific give a bi-annual offering to Avondale, which also supports the appeal.
Supporting the Lifestyle Research Centre
The Avondale College of Higher Education Annual Appeal supports the Lifestyle Research Centre as it continues to lead in the study of lifestyle medicine and grows its contribution to the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s comprehensive health strategy. Giving to the offering will: offer seed money to Pacific islanders to begin postgraduate research in lifestyle medicine at Avondale; and support two of the centre’s projects—Lifestyle Intervention and Infection Prevention.
Your donation will improve wellbeing by reducing the burden of chronic disease and reducing the impact of preventable infections. It will also empower those with influence to share their knowledge with those in their communities, many of which are now having to meet the challenge of treating chronic lifestyle medical issues.
