Prevention and Wellness Initiatives at Premier Health
We’re always working to build healthier communities throughout the Dayton region. Premier Health and community-based programs we support provide valuable information and guidance to help community members improve and maintain their health. Bringing these programs to the community is a central part of how we keep our commitment to improving the health of the individuals and communities we serve.
Premier Community Health
Your health and the health of your community are central to our mission. Premier Community Health (PCH) offers health and wellness programs for everyone in the Greater Dayton region.
PCH is uniquely designed to promote healthy living through prevention, early detection and disease self-management. We provide community members with information that enables them to make healthy lifestyle choices for themselves and their loved ones.
To make our services convenient for you, our staff comes to where you work, worship or play. Whether you are trying to stay healthy or are living with a health condition such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease or cancer, PCH helps you take control of your health.
Premier HeartWorks can give you a comprehensive evaluation of your risk of heart attack or stroke.
Through a variety of advanced screenings, we help identify hidden heart problems and provide a “snapshot” of your heart health. With education, counseling and exercise tips we help you lower your risk and lead a healthier lifestyle.
LIFESTEPS® Weight Management Program
Losing weight can be a real challenge. LIFESTEPS® Weight Management is a 12-week program that provides the baby steps you need so you can lose weight and keep it off.
This program is for individuals who are committed to taking positive steps toward better health. It provides tools for weight management based on sound nutrition principles and tailored exercise plans.
LIFESTEPS® Weight Management can help you if you:
- Are ready to change behaviors that hinder weight loss
- Realize weight loss means a slimmer version of you, not a whole new body
- Know that you didn’t gain the weight overnight and you won’t lose the weight overnight
- Want to learn how to successfully deal with setbacks
We help you learn how to manage nutritional needs and portion sizes and explain the benefits of physical activity. You also learn how to manage high-risk eating situations. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call Premier HeartWorks at (937) 438-LIVE (5483).
