Health 4 U
Health 4 U was designed using the National Diabetes Prevention Program, a lifestyle change program covered by Medicare B for those that qualify. With this program, you can cut your risk of type 2 diabetes by more than 70%.
The program has received the CDC Full Plus Recognition as a National Diabetes Prevention Program.
High blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels — having just one of these conditions can contribute to your risk of serious disease. Together, these symptoms are even riskier and form a condition called metabolic syndrome, often a precursor to diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
The HEALTH 4 U program is designed to help you delay or derail the onset of serious diseases by working with you to:
Your Health 4 U team— from top left, clockwise, Jason, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, ACE Health Coach; Nikki, Exercise Physiologist; Emily, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist; Angela Lee, RN; Michelle, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist; Terri Connors, RN.
The 12 months consist of 26 sessions spread throughout the year. You will work with a trained lifestyle coach and other participants to learn the skills you need to make lasting changes. You will learn to eat healthy, add physical activity to your life, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes.
