RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Jan. 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Looking to become your “Best Self” in 2024? Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) is here to help.
“Healthy Living: My Best Self” is a new IEHP wellness program that guides people to develop healthy lifestyle habits. Participants will learn how to set personal goals, follow a routine that supports body and mind, and achieve a healthy weight – all for free.
“We want to provide program participants who have a body mass index outside of normal standards with wellness tools and education to reduce health issues associated with unhealthy lifestyle choices,” said Rosalina Nava-Bermundez, IEHP’s manager of health education, promotion, and prevention.
IEHP health educators – who work with members daily to establish new goals, provide health tips, and avoid or manage chronic conditions – developed the program, which is open to IEHP members and non-members.
Participants can track their progress using a guidebook filled with helpful tips, an online program portal, and in-person nutrition and exercise classes available at:
- Community Resource Centers in San Bernardino, Victorville and Riverside
- The First 5 Family Resource Center in Perris, Mecca and Desert Hot Springs
- And a soon-to-be announced location in Ontario
“Overall, we expect members will discover new areas of support in hopes of achieving a healthy weight,” Nava-Bermundez said. “This may happen through healthy choices based on knowledge or the adoption of healthy habits, which may include stress management and physical activities.”
To register for the program, IEHP members can sign up via the IEHP Member Portal at iehp.org. Click on “Member Login,” then choose “Health and Wellness” to select the right class for you. Members can also register at any teaching location.
For non-members, registration is open through the “Events” tab at iehp.org or by visiting any class site.
