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


Strong Evidence

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:

"Excellent lectures!"
"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.
