Are you trying to make a healthy change in your life? UPMC Health Plan members can get one-on-one support from a health coach through our nationally acclaimed MyHealth program. All at no cost to them!
So whether you want to change your lifestyle or manage a condition that has changed your life, a health coach can help. A health coach works with you to set goals and find the best ways to reach them. MyHealth health coaches include licensed nurses, counselors, registered dietitians, social workers, and exercise physiologists.
Take Coach Laura, for example — she's a registered dietitian. Watch her video to learn why a coach may have the right game plan for you.
You can work with a health coach like Laura over the phone or online to:
- Lose weight.
- Quit tobacco.
- Eat healthier.
- Manage stress.
- Get more exercise.
If you have a chronic health condition like diabetes, asthma, or depression, health coaches can help you with that too. Our condition management programs are designed to help you:
- Understand your condition.
- Identify and manage your symptoms.
- Understand treatment options.
- Develop plans for taking medications and following your doctor's advice.
Everyone has different challenges. Your health coach will help you identify and tackle your health challenges and get you on the road to better health.
