Taking action after a biometric screening

"I was worried about my high blood pressure, but now I'm excited to get healthy!"

Ellen discovered she had high blood pressure after participating in a Health Advocate biometric screening at her workplace. After seeing her doctor, she was told that she needed to reduce her high blood pressure to avoid serious health problems. Because her employer offered access to a number of Health Advocate programs, including the Wellness Program, she decided to give it a try. Since joining, Ellen has changed her diet using easy-to-make, low-fat recipes provided by her Wellness Coach, enrolled in a spinning class, learned and implemented healthy ways to reduce stress, reduced her cholesterol by 60 points and lost 12 pounds.
