Asthma affects 334 million people globally with the highest number of patients living in developed countries.

On November 10-12, 2017, a special music program was held in Seventh Day Adventist Reform Movement churches around the world. Taking into consideration the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, this year's music program was themed "Music and the Protestant Reformation."
Readings, videos, a magazine, and other content and resources were prepared by the General Conference Music Committee to be distributed to churches worldwide. (You can access this material by visiting music.sdarm.org)
