We hear the term health coach more and more these days so I wanted to explore the role of the health coach in this blog post. A health coach is a coach for people who want to or who are contemplating making behavioral changes that result in a healthier lifestyle. A health coach is a type of healthcare extender trained to help others set goals and be accountable for themselves as they begin a journey to improve their overall health and quality of life.
One of my favorite things to do it sit, listen, and talk with interesting people. For almost two years now I have had the pleasure of sitting down with some beautiful humans and recording these conversations for our Healthcare Insights in Northwest North Carolina podcast https://soundcloud.com/nwahecwebmaster
I recently connected with Jeremy Moseley, the Director of Community Engagement of FaithHealth, to discuss the mission and their ministries. Their mission is to build, align and animate religious and community assets to improve access to health care and the health of the community - a mission that aligns well with Northwest AHEC's.
2021 NC Annual STD Update is being held on March 31, 2021 and will be live via Webex ONLY.
To keep all safe, we have decided to host the 2021 NC Annual STD Update as a fully virtual program with no group remote viewing site options.
The 2021 Update will provide up-to-date information on prevention, management and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The program will also include a panel discussion with case studies that will review common disease states that may complicate treatment, explore emerging infections, and discuss the future of testing technique implementation.
