MercyOne Clinton Medical Center will again offer its Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) in February.

Led by a registered dietitian and a certified wellness coach, CHIP is a lifestyle modification program designed to prevent and reverse chronic diseases. The program is designed to help participants make long-lasting lifestyle changes by addressing the causes of chronic disease and using their own lifestyle as their best medicine. CHIP focuses on lifestyle changes in all aspects of health, including nutrition, physical activity, substance use, stress, self-worth and even happiness.

Participants will undergo a health screening and lab work to check cholesterol, blood sugar and other health indicators, and the screening will be repeated at the end of the program. Participants also will receive a tool kit including a workbook, cookbook and textbook. Sessions will concentrate on the following areas:

  • Lifestyle Is the Best Medicine
  • Eat More, Weigh Less
  • Disarming Diabetes
  • The Heart of the Matter
  • Controlling Blood Pressure and Discovering Protein
  • Bone Health Essentials
  • Cancer Prevention
  • DNA Is Not Your Destiny
  • Practicing Forgiveness
  • Stress Relieving Strategies
  • Fix How You Feel, and more

CHIP is Thursdays from February 17 to June 23, 2022, 11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., at the MercyOne North Health Plaza, West Annex, located at 915 13th Avenue North, Clinton. Masks and social distancing are required.
