‘Family Health Checkup’ Radio Feature from Samaritan Ministries Reaches Millions of Listeners Worldwide on 700+ Stations
Free, Daily, One-Minute Radio Feature Provides Families with Reliable Information on Nutrition, Fitness, Safety, Kids’ Health and More from a Christian Perspective
PEORIA, Ill.—With all the medical and health care information swirling in the media, where can Christian families get a daily dose of accurate information to help them make the best decisions for their bodies, minds and spirits?
Samaritan Ministries International (samaritanministries.org), one of the leading health care sharing ministries in America, seeks to do just that through its daily, one-minute radio feature, “Family Health Checkup.”
“Family Health Checkup” airs on more than 700 radio outlets in all 50 states and in some international markets, and the radio feature is growing, reaching millions of listeners. Doug Chamberlain, Samaritan’s “Family Health Checkup” host and producer as well as a 25-year CCM radio veteran, researches, writes, records, edits and works to syndicate the program.
“Since ‘Family Health Checkup’ officially launched at the 2016 National Religious Broadcasters Convention, we’ve had the pleasure of better informing millions of listeners about their health care,” Chamberlain said. “‘Family Health Checkup’ is designed to provide valuable, upbeat insights on nutrition, fitness, seasonal health, safety, money-saving tips, kids’ health and much more from a trusted Christian source. It is intended to be a public service to the Christian community and beyond.”
Samaritan’s “Family Health Checkup” website delves even deeper into health-related matters, with regular articles that give readers and listeners valuable information on subjects like “The Truth About Sugar,” “Teaching Kids to Cook” and “Staying Hydrated with Healthy Foods.”
Leaders and staff members at Samaritan Ministries know that providing members with solid and helpful information will not only keep them healthier but may also keep them out of doctors’ offices and hospitals.

Each month, more than 82,000 Samaritan member households (269,000-plus individuals) send their financial shares directly to other members, along with notes and cards of encouragement, through this effective, God-honoring ministry. Samaritan’s growing Biblical community shares approximately $29 million in medical needs person-to-person each month. In fact, from 2002 through 2018, Samaritan Ministries members shared $1.5 billion in health care needs. Yet Samaritan’s monthly share has never exceeded $495 for a family of any size and is even less for two-person and single-person households.
