Healthy Education Lifestyles Program HELP

The Healthy Education Lifestyles Program (HELP) can assist you by providing clinical care, resources and education. HELP assists uninsured patients in managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension.

HELP uses a coordinated, team-based approach where patients can build a relationship with the HELP staff. Every HELP visit is comprised of three key components — an individual visit with a mid‐level practitioner, including necessary lab testing; an education session to increase health literacy; and a support group, which is crucial for establishing and ensuring accountability for improved health outcomes.

It provides program participants with ongoing health coaching and education resources to support patients learning to effectively manage their chronic disease and encourage them to take an active role in reducing the negative effects their chronic conditions will otherwise take on their lives. Additionally, HELP staff work with patients to reduce the barriers often encountered to self-managing their disease (access to healthy food, access to primary care, lack of transportation, etc.).
