Our “Take Charge” program is a virtual diabetes prevention program that will provide you with tools, information and support to live a healthy life and prevent chronic medical conditions. As health care providers, we have found that now more than ever, people are searching for ways to take charge and improve their health. For many, the COVID-19 pandemic has aggravated their health risks AND increased the need to conduct health care from the safety of their homes. That is where Nutrition Pair’s “Take Charge (& Make That Change)” virtual lifestyle program comes in.
What it is:
“Take Charge” is a one year group-based virtual lifestyle program which will focus on a whole-health approach to wellness. While the overall theme is improving nutrition, a multitude of topics will be covered which include nutrition, physical activity, mindfulness and stress reduction. There will also be opportunities for individualized sessions with Nutrition Pair.
Please note that the overall goal of the program is diabetes prevention. However, If you don’t have pre-diabetes, we still encourage you to consider participating in this program. Continue reading to see if this program is for you.
