Heart Health

Heart Health                           

Heart health and obesity prevention is a primary focus area for ELVPHD. In fact, obesity prevention is the #1 priority on our Community Health Improvement Plan. Because healthy lifestyles are such a primary focus for ELVPHD, we have many current to improve heart healthy lifestyles. One such program is our Operation Heart to Heart Worksite Wellness program.

The goal of our Operation Heart to Heart program is to reduce heart disease in our service area (Burt, Cuming, Madison and Stanton counties). It is designed to educate and motivate people to make meaningful changes to improve their heart health through screening, education and health coaching.  We have provided case management / health coaching services to individuals in our service area since 2012 with the following proven results:

  • 63% lost weight
  • 86% improved blood pressure
  • 50% improved blood sugar values
  • Many others showed improvements with cholesterol, triglycerides, physical activity & nutrition
