Almost 66% of American adults are overweight or obese and the number continues to climb.
Viocare has designed a unique program which builds partnerships between local governments, health departments, community health care organizations, retailers, businesses, and residents. This partnership forms a supporting network, encouraging individual residents to increase their physical activity, manage their weight, and develop and maintain healthier lifestyles. Accomplished through a web-based wellness portal, communities finally have an opportunity to bring a sustainable program to their residents that has the power to generate a wellness "tipping point" to cause lasting change.
Not only do residents have convenient access to online nutrition, health and fitness tools, the system also provides extensive local content via health blogs, networking forums, and a comprehensive calendar of healthy events within the community.
A unique rewards program allows members to earn Wellness Points for both online and community activities. Members can redeem their Wellness Points for merchandise and services from community merchants. The result is a healthier community that supports its local economy.
This program is already making a healthy impact on Viocare's own community of Princeton, New Jersey at http://www.princetonlivingwell.com.
Viocare, as a Microsoft® HealthVault™ Solutions Provider, has enabled Princeton Living Well to work with several HealthVault enabled activity devices, providing additional ways to earn Wellness Points.
