How can you make your health BETTER? Through the BETTER Program!
We are all at risk for developing chronic disease, such as cancers, heart disease, or diabetes. The good news is that making small changes in our diet, physical activity, smoking, alcohol intake and mental wellness can help prevent these chronic conditions.
What is BETTER?
BETTER is a free program for adults ages 40 to 65 that focuses on chronic disease prevention and screening. It provides participants with the opportunity to learn their personal risk for diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, and make goals to improve their health.
How BETTER Works
- Participants will complete a survey about their health,
- Attend a one-on-one visit with a Prevention Practitioner to discuss their personalized chronic disease risk, which includes looking at their recommended cancer screening intervals, as well as their blood sugar levels, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, family history and mental health and wellness,
- Receive an in-depth overview of many aspects of their health and have the opportunity to set health goals based on what they would like to improve on, and
- Participate in follow up appointments every 6 to 12 months to reassess their health and track their goals.
If you are between the ages of 40 to 65 years and are looking for BETTER health and wellness, consider contacting the clinic by emailing [email protected] or calling 807-229-3243 to enroll in the BETTER Program.
