What is Faith Moves Mountains?
Faith Moves Mountains is a research organization hosted by the Behavioral Science department of the University of Kentucky. Our research studies how rural community members from Eastern Kentucky make health decisions and we are testing programs that work with local churches.

By determining what factors influence how Kentuckians make healthier lifestyle choices, we hope to gain valuable insight into how to form more effective programs to encourage healthier behaviors.

Faith Moves Mountains has two projects: Quittin' & Preventin' and Healthy Well-Thee & Wise. These projects research three areas of health decision making: smoking cessation, cancer check screening, and healthy energy balance lifestyles.

Participants are asked about their views on health before and after, through a series of questionnaires for which they receive monetary compensation, to track potential changes in thinking or behavior.
