Health Coach Benefit Through Independent Health

Health coaching is a benefit that is part of the college’s health insurance plan. Health coaches are licensed registered nurses, dieticians, respiratory therapists, social workers and other certified health professionals. The health coaches encourage self-management and educate members on living a healthy life.

How can health coaching help you? Health coaching programs can help you meet personal health goals for asthma, diabetes, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, depression, fitness and nutrition. The health coach will also support and encourage you to set short and long term goals, as well as to create action plans and keep track of your progress.

You may benefit from health coaching if you are looking for motivation, discipline and accountability, need a personalized plan to achieve your unique needs or find all information on fitness, health and nutrition overwhelming. All assistance is private and confidential and there is no cost for this service.

If you are interested in speaking with a health coach, please contact Don St. Cyr at (716) 635-3679.
