Samaritan’s ‘Family Health Checkup’

Family Health Checkup Radio produced by Samaritan Ministries International, surpassed 1,000 markets in June and continues to add listeners nationwide.

PEORIA, IL — An upbeat daily one-minute radio program just added its 1,000th market to its broadcast network by reliably providing practical insights on nutrition, fitness, seasonal health, safety, kids’ health, and much more. “Family Health Checkup,” the daily 60-second feature produced by Samaritan Ministries International (Samaritan,, a leading health care sharing ministry, surpassed 1,000 markets in June and continues to add listeners nationwide.

Doug Chamberlain, host and producer of “Family Health Checkup,” offers ordinary listeners simple tips every man, woman, and child can apply.

“If you’re looking for a refreshing way to start your day off right, add some lemons to your routine,” Chamberlain told listeners in July. “The acid levels in lemons can help break down food. Additionally, they contain vitamin C, which has many benefits to our overall health.”

Preventive care is usually a more complete and cost-effective approach to staying healthy. That’s why each “Family Health Checkup” broadcast empowers listeners with practical advice in simple, guiltless, bite-sized chunks. In tackling the call to exercise regularly, Chamberlain keeps the advice simple and achievable.

“A good goal to start is walking 10,000 steps a day,” Chamberlain said. “A simple pedometer or an app on your cell phone will help track your steps. Increase your number of steps by parking farther away from your office or the entrance to the grocery store.”

“Family Health Checkup” is one of many ways Samaritan Ministries International supports families and encourages them to take ownership of their health care.

Through this effective, God-honoring ministry, more than 82,000 households with more than 250,000 Samaritan members are sharing approximately $30 million in health care needs person to person each month.
