HEALTH 4 U
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.
Special program offered
Aggressive lifestyle changes can delay or derail the onset of serious diseases. RAMC wants everyone to lead a full and healthy life. That’s why we developed the HEALTH 4 U Program. Some features of the program include:
- Free access to RAMC group exercise classes held Monday - Friday, and to the Wellness Center exercise equipment
- Weekly educational classes led by healthcare professionals at RAMC
- Weekly monitored food and activity logs
- Up-to-date nutrition education
- Small class sizes
The HEALTH 4 U Program was modeled after other programs with demonstrated success – between 58% -78% reductions in the chances for at-risk members from developing type 2 diabetes!
The 6-month program is divided into two 3-month phases. The first phase attempts to improve lifestyle habits through weekly sessions, education and exercise. The second phase follows with phone calls, e-mails and bi-monthly meetings. A recent class held this year had great results with an average of 20.8# lost in 12 weeks!
Some words from participants:
"The weekly sessions were motivating and educational."
"Excellent attention to my questions and needs."
"This program has been the catalyst to make positive changes in my life."
The HEALTH 4 U Program is not a covered benefit as part of most health plans. Some insurances will reimburse for this wellness program.
