Free program supports healthy lifestyle changes

walkingFall, is a great time to make healthy lifestyle changes that will carry you through into next year. By making changes now, you will create good habits for the holiday season and the upcoming winter months. With the changing of the seasons and the start of the school year comes a renewed mindset. Maybe your goal is to eat a healthier diet, stop smoking, lose weight or walk three miles a day. Whatever your goal, the Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) program can help you reach it.

What is HELPS TLC? HELPS TLC is a medically directed, professionally supervised program designed to help individuals develop a healthy and active lifestyle using exercise and education.

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 nutritionist and health psychologist 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 in September.
