When asked about numbers in health, most people would respond with their weight. Others might respond by talking about the ever increasing cost of healthcare. But what’s the connection between the two? How can knowing your Body Mass Index, blood pressure, blood glucose and more teach you about your current health and how you can improve it? Would becoming a proactive participant in your health impact the bottom line in healthcare costs for you and the nation? Make a free appointment for a 15 minute health assessment to learn your numbers and then join us for discussion over lunch in the afternoon. Bring your opinions and questions for an interactive discussion on how numbers in health impact you and government policies.
