Health Education & Disease Prevention

Whether it's work or lifestyle related, the simplest and most cost effective way to prevent illness and injury is through proper training and education.  HealthWorks offers the following onsite preventive services to ensure a safe and healthy workplace:


Onsite Health Assessment

Health Risk Appraisal (HRA) 
Height and Weight 
Body Mass Index (BMI) 
Blood Pressure 
Laboratory Tests — Lipid profile, Metabolic profile, Thyroid panel, CBC and optional PSA 
Health Education Follow-up 


Health Coaching

Health Coaching is an individualized approach to helping clients identify and reach health improvement goals. Health Works health coaches are educators with training and experience in health education who understand lifestyle behaviors that lead to increased health risks and how to lower these risks through practical but effective behavior change. Health Coaching adds motivation, accountability, awareness, education, focus and practicality to an individual's behavior change endeavors.

What's included?
The 20–30 minute coaching session results in a Personal Wellness Plan in which the coach and participant together: 

  • Review the Health Assessment results
