BestHealth GoHealthy! classes will begin the week of Jan. 6 to help team members make healthier choices. The 13-week weight management program is open to all team members, whether or not they are on Baptist’s health insurance plan. The program includes nutrition, physical activity and behavior modification.
Last year, 722 team members participated and lost 4,100 pounds. To learn more about how GoHealthy! benefited some of them, go to baptistleader.org and type “BestHealth Testimonial” in the search bar.
“Participation in the GoHealthy! weight management program can be transformative, both physically and mentally,” said Patrick Conn, BestHealth wellbeing specialist. “It brings together those who have similar goals and seek to have the accountability to reach those goals.”
Classes meet for half an hour once a week. Some classes are held in person, and others are offered through WebEx video conferencing.
BestHealth members who did not earn incentives for body mass index, glucose and/or blood pressure can earn those incentives by participating in at least 10 GoHealthy! sessions.
