Iowa Public Health introduces free program for patients with disabilities
DES MOINES, Iowa —
The Iowa Department of Public Health introduced a 14-week plan this week, to keep patients healthy and on the move.
14 Weeks to a Healthier You is a free online program, designed to help people with disabilities.
Patients first register on the site and provide some information about themselves. The program then breaks down a meal plan and list of exercises that meet their individual needs.
“This is an exciting program because it is so inclusive,” said IDPH Brain Injury and Disability program manager Maggie Ferguson. “It takes into consideration a variety of limitations, so virtually anyone can find an activity and nutrition plan that works for them.”
The patient's work load increases as each week passes. On this site, users will also find a nutrition tracker and free access to wellness coaches.
