Health Education

As part of Rainelle Medical Center’s mission and practice philosophy, it is our goal to provide our patients with all of the tools necessary to have comprehensive health care, right at home.

Included in the toolkit are our health education classes with the health educator or “health coach”. Health coaching empowers you to make lasting health behavior changes that are the cornerstones of lifelong well-being. It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and your abilities to successfully implement those recommendations into your life. Our health coach is also available to give one-on-one education and assistance to patients who need that extra attention.

Chronic care management can be difficult in our day to day lives, especially when first diagnosed. Our medical providers can refer patients to our health coach for group classes or individual sessions pertaining to the lifestyle changes that should occur when learning to manage a chronic illness like diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.

Our health coach will work with you to set and attain goals in areas of nutrition and portion control, exercise and motivation to make lifestyle changes on the way to improving your health outcomes.

It’s your health…take control!
