Brigham and Women’s
Center for Community Wellness Health Discussions
The Center for Community Wellness at STEC is specifically designed to bring directly to our patients innovative community based programs focusing on the prevention of hyperglycemia and obesity, on nutritional support and “food education”, on heart-healthy blood pressure reduction strategies, on preventive approaches to the management of hyperlipidemia, and where appropriate, and on environmental triggers and thus stabilization of asthma. Importantly, these patient healthy goals link together under one roof through activities such as our Brigham and Women’s Center for Community Wellness Health Discussions that incorporate formal gym and exercise classes with a wide ranging curriculum of health promotion and weight reduction activities targeted to patients of all ages so that we reach both older parents, their younger caregivers at home, and youth.
HEAL2 (Health Education, Awareness & Literacy = Healthy Engagement, Actions & Life)
is a year-long CCW initiative featuring monthly workshops and interactive forums.
Brigham and Women’s Center for Community Wellness Health Discussions are held at:
