WHO ARE WE?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there exists a correlation between income levels and health status. The rates of preventable hospitalizations increase as income decreases. They also report a correlation between education levels and health status. Those who did not complete high school experience fewer healthy days than those who did complete high school, have some college, and graduate from college. “Chronic diseases from poor lifestyle choices are at the heart of our nation’s health care crisis and comprise approximately 75% of our health care dollars”. These high healthcare costs are straining individuals, families, governments, and companies around the world. THIS IS THE HEALTH CRISIS!
We are here to bridge the gap between the healthy and unhealthy; to make a difference; to educate, encourage, and empower individuals to take control of their own lives, their health, and their future; to implement lasting, healthy nutrition, and lifestyle behaviors. It is our desire to change the health of the world, one person at a time.
We have the accumulated knowledge and experience of 108 years from many areas of health & behavioral science; including nutrition, physical activity, medical health, diabetic care, healthy weight loss, hypertension, physiology, biomechanics, public health promotion, smoking cessation, metabolic/endocrine, sports/fitness, stress management, gastrointestinal, oncology, cardiology, neurology, pre-marital/marital facilitation, and mental health promotion – for all ages from pediatric to geriatric care.
