WISEWOMAN (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation)

WISEWOMAN provides free health screenings and coaching to help you make small, healthy changes in your life.

WISEWOMAN helps low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women ages 40-64 in Wayne County make healthy changes by setting small goals.

The Program includes:

  • A brief health intake screening (glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.)
  • Goal-setting and planning – you decide which behavior you want to focus on to improve your health (anything from eating more fruits and vegetables, to going on a 15 minute walk three days per week, to being more diligent about taking your blood pressure medication, and more)
  • Consistent follow-up with a health coach, including text or phone support
  • Health coaches may refer you to community-based lifestyle programs, such as the Diabetes Prevention Program, and WISEWOMAN will pay for it
  • A follow-up evaluation to measure progress.
