HEALTH EDUCATION

Our Health Education services are designed to help children, adolescents, and adults improve their health, by increasing their knowledge and influencing their attitudes and behaviors.

A Health Educator is on staff and works in partnership with our neighborhood schools to implement sequential health education curriculum that is culturally and developmentally appropriate to address behavioral outcomes that promote healthy eating and physical activity.

Adult patients referred by our physicians are able to receive individualized health education, nutrition instruction, and support.

Health education is also integral to the mission of schools, providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to become successful learners and healthy adults.

Some health education topics that we offer for our adult patients include education around:

Chronic disease management

Medication compliance

Weight management

Smoking Cessation

Family Planning and Contraceptive Options

Some health education activities that we offer for students and adolescents include:

Meal planning

Food logs/journaling

Food demonstrations
