Wake Forest news for faculty and staff

WFU program can help you have a happier, healthier new year

The New Year will soon be here and with it comes the opportunity for a new start and a new you! If you’re like millions of Americans, you will vow to turn over a new leaf come January. Your goal might be to eat a healthier diet, stop smoking, lose weight or walk three miles a day. Often times, however, come late January or February, it all seems to be too much.

Does this sound familiar?  You are not alone and Wake Forest’s Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) program can help!  With the addition of several new components, TLC is better than ever.

What is HELPS TLC? HELPS TLC is a medically directed, professionally supervised “Therapeutic Lifestyle Change” designed to develop a healthy and active lifestyle utilizing exercise and education programs.

What will you receive? Individualized assessments, therapies and follow-up; dietary intake is assessed through computer-analyzed food records; supervised exercise sessions at our conveniently located monitored exercise facility; weekly small group sessions will be held on campus in Reynolds Gym 210.

What is the cost? The cost will be covered by Wake Forest.

Who will be helping you? The HELPS TLC staff consists of an exercise physiologist, registered dietician and behavioral scientist who work together to teach you behavioral strategies for the management of physical activity and eating.

We are currently taking applications for the next group which will start the middle of January.  For more information or to sign up, please contact Andrea Cox via email at shuttar@nullwfu.edu or by phone at ext. 5853.  Space is limited, sign up today!
