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 and blood pressure)
  • 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
  • Community navigators may provide referrals to community-based lifestyle programs, including a weight loss program called Taking off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) or the Diabetes Prevention Program
