Healthy Lifestyle Program

The BMH Healthy Lifestyle Program classes began in 2018. The year long program has been researched and certified by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). 

 

Participants are expected to attend classes once a week for the first six months, which is considered the Core Program. During the second six months of the year, class participants meet twice

a month, which is considered the Post Core. During Post Core, the class instructor will reinforce the information taught during the first six months. 

 

Classes last approximately one hour and include education and resources regarding nutrition, stress reduction, healthy living and diabetes prevention. Specific topics include healthy diet (how to read food labels, calorie or carbohydrate counting, portion sizes, eating more fruits and vegetables, decreasing sugary drinks and drinking more water). In addition, participants learn about mindless and emotional eating as well as physical activity and the importance of getting adequate sleep.

Weigh-ins are held weekly, which are private.

 

Classes are taught by hospital provider Kathy Hill, APRN, FNP-BC and take place on the third floor of the Hill Chiropractic Building (467 Main Street, Madison-off hospital campus).
