Health Coaches aim to Stem Chronic Disease
You’ve probably heard about the nation’s exorbitant healthcare costs. After years of research into this growing trend, it is estimated that almost $300 billion annually is spent on preventable health care costs—primarily patients who simply fail to take their medications. This doesn’t even take into account the patients who ignore continued doctors’ advice to increase exercise or improve diet.
From these disappointing facts, it’s evident that staying healthy involves more than just visiting the doctor—it means sustained lifestyle changes—often difficult to implement. That’s where health coaches enter the picture. This growing profession has gained significant momentum lately as more and more medical professionals recognize the benefits.
Health Coaches help their patients become better informed while remaining closely involved in their healthcare plan—proving to be an effective follow-up to primary care. The Soma Institute is dedicated to being a part of the solution to the nation’s healthcare crisis. Soma offers a comprehensive 15-week Health & Wellness Coaching program for students who are serious about a career in helping others.
