    MercyOne Clinton Medical Center’s popular Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) begins a new session on Friday, August 27, 2021. CHIP is a lifestyle modification program designed to prevent and reverse chronic diseases.

    Led by a registered dietitian and a certified wellness coach from MercyOne Clinton Medical Center, CHIP is designed to help participants make long-lasting lifestyle changes by addressing the causes of chronic disease and teaching them to use their own lifestyle as their best medicine. CHIP is an evidence-based and peer-reviewed program that focuses on lifestyle changes in all aspects of health, including nutrition, physical activity, substance use, stress, self-worth and even happiness.

    At the beginning of the CHIP program, participants will undergo a health screening and lab work to check cholesterol, blood sugar and other health indicators. The screening will be repeated at the end of the program. Participants also will receive a tool kit including a workbook, cookbook and textbook. Each session focuses on a topic, including:
    • Lifestyle Is the Best Medicine
    • Eat More, Weigh Less
    • Disarming Diabetes
    • The Heart of the Matter
    • Controlling Blood Pressure and Discovering Protein
    • Bone Health Essentials
    • Cancer Prevention
    • DNA Is Not Your Destiny
    • Practicing Forgiveness
    • Stress Relieving Strategies
    • Fix How You Feel, and more
    Classes will be held on Fridays from August 27 to January 11, 11-11:45 a.m., at the MercyOne North Health Plaza West Annex, 915 13th Avenue N., Clinton. Everyone will be required to wear a mask, and social distancing protocols will be observed.
