The goal of our Health Coaching program is to assist individuals in Tompkins County in taking proactive steps to care for themselves and in developing a sense of control over their own health.
The participants themselves will choose which personal health issue they’ll focus on. Examples of such health issues include, but certainly aren’t limited to, hypertension, obesity, smoking, and diabetes. The program will encourage preventative care and provide education, encouragement, and accountability.
Health Coaching is being offered to individuals who are on Medicaid or are uninsured and who live in Tompkins County. Home visits are available to make it easier for clients to access this service.
Some program participants will be offered “health-positive” incentives such as access to free classes on exercise, cooking, and gardening.
Our Health Coaching program is funded through a grant from the Care Compass Network.
