CHIP program ready to promote healthy food and lifestyle changes

University employees and their spouses receive free enrollment

The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) is a research-tested, intensive lifestyle intervention designed to prevent, arrest, and facilitate the reversal of many common chronic diseases. With CHIP, you can experience remarkable benefits gained through simple lifestyle changes, many of which you'll begin to see in a matter of weeks.  

Over 300 people have already taken advantage of this wellness benefit offered by Life Healthy Appalachia and the Ohio University Benefits Office.*  

Once again, The Patton College of Education is partnering with Live Healthy Appalachia to offer the classes in McCracken Hall with whole food plant-based recipes prepared by students in the college’s Restaurant, Hotel, and Tourism program.  

Class sessions will be held:
Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 1 pm
McCracken Hall, Room 120
Sept. 16 through Nov. 20

Whether you want to make gradual changes or are ready to make a leap toward better health, CHIP will provide you with the research, recipes, and support that you need to succeed.
