The Association is the first Y in Northeast and North Central Ohio to develop this type of biometric screening program, which is a partnership between the YMCA of Greater Cleveland and Wellness Evolution, a Beachwood-based integrative medicine and wellness company.
The new program will be piloted at four branches: Downtown, Lakewood, Warrensville Heights and West Shore, and is part of the Y’s efforts to address the nations health crisis on a local level.
Participants will receive a biometric screening test kit, which will use dried blood spot specimens to measure four key indicators and how they impact your health: Blood Cholesterol levels, Triglycerides, Glucose levels, and Thyroid.
The program will include a review of members’ health history and a consulation with a highly-trained Wellness Coach.
Wellness Coaches will tailor programs that will address disease prevention, reversal and management.
The new pilot program will run throughout the month of July and will include at least one East side and one West Side educational seminar.
As a part of the pilot effort, programs including anxiety and depression management, weight loss and management, lifestyle management, individual coaching, personal training and diabetes prevention will be available.
