Wise Choices provides free health screenings and coaching to help you make small, healthy changes in your life. It consists of:

  • A brief health intake screening (glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.)
  • Goal-setting and planning - you decide which behavior you want to focus on to improve your health (anything from eating more fruits and vegetables, to going on a 15 minute walk three days per week, to being more diligent about taking your blood pressure medication, and more)
  • Consistent follow-up with a community navigator, including text or phone support
  • Community navigators may refer you to community-based lifestyle programs, and Wise Choice will pay for the program. Examples include a weight loss program called Taking Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) and the Diabetes Prevention Program
