JIB now offers a variety of Wellness programs
* Cardioprevention Program (CPP)
A unique and comprehensive evidence-based program to detect atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) at the earliest stage and to advise you how you can prevent it from causing you problems. The program includes advanced testing and recommendations for treatment, helps patients prevent heart attacks, strokes and many other complications of atherosclerosis.
The CPP uses a special type of sonogram of the carotid arteries in the neck to detect changes from atherosclerosis earlier than any other clinical test. The sonogram is called a carotid intimal-medial thickness test (CIMT).
The exam also detects all the major risk factors that cause and worsen atherosclerosis.
Every CPP is individualized to your personal needs and findings.
When setting up your annual physical, simply ask to add the CPP to your annual exam (it can be done separately in special circumstances.)
* Wellness Workshops
A series of fun, interactive and hands on learning sessions. The workshops introduce participants to making manageable modifications on making healthy lifestyle changes for enjoying a healthier way of life.
Our mission is to educate and coach participants on how they can incorporate healthier lifestyle adjustments into their busy lives.
The workshop group activities are aimed to help encourage and support each participant with tools to help increase understanding of how to eat healthy, the benefits of being physically active and to gain knowledge about the importance of eating a variety of different food groups.
Participants learn from the instructors, but also develop knowledge and skills from the hands on activities that are done in group activities and from each other's success stories and encouragement. The Wellness Workshop series are conducted in April and October. All participants in the PHBP are welcome.
