Health & Wellness Coach Week
Of the $4 trillion spent on health care in the US, only 2% goes towards prevention. That’s a pretty paltry percentage considering upwards of 75% of all health care costs go toward chronic disease. Capitol Hill took the first step this week towards addressing this crisis by announcing the Health & Wellness Coach Week nationwide.
A group of bipartisan lawmakers introduced the Health and Wellness Coach Resolution in an effort to bring awareness and education to the country. The resolution supports and recognizes health and wellness coaches nationwide and their work in combating the global health crisis.
“Now more than ever, we need to recognize the contributions of health and wellness coaches and lend them support as they continue to inspire positive behavior changes that will dramatically lower our nation’s health care costs,” Rep. Donald M. Payne Jr., D-N.J., said in a statement.
The Soma Institute in Chicago is dedicated to educating the community about smarter lifestyle choices. As a Health & Wellness Coach, you become part of the solution—helping clients establish goals, remain accountable, maintain motivation, and focus on making lasting changes.
