Health Coaching

Our health coaches are supportive individuals who are trained to help people figure out their personal health and wellness goals. Health coaches help develop strategies with the individual to overcome and create healthy behavior and lifestyle changes. People who want to lose weight, reduce stress, or lower risk of chronic disease are just some area where a health coach can be helpful. 

Nutrition and Diabetes Education and Counseling

Our Nutrition Education and Counseling Program includes one-on-one nutrition education and counseling, for adults and children, for many conditions.

Diabetes education is provided through our Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). Our approach promotes patient-centered care, working with primary care providers to help patients take control of this chronic condition.
