Kirby Medical Center’s Preventative Healthcare Program

Health & Wellbeing Coaching (HWC)

Health and wellbeing coaching is a well-rounded, personal look at your physical, emotional, and mental health.

Topics discussed in a HWC session may include being a caregiver, work/life balance, quitting smoking, starting a physical activity routine, cooking healthier meals, organizing your home, managing stress, financial wellness, healthy relationships, healthy sleep habits or more!

What to expect when starting HWC at Kirby Medical Center?

  • Before your first HWC session you share background health information through a health and wellbeing assessment.
  • The first HWC session is 60-90 minutes. You will identify your health priorities and create an individual health and wellbeing plan.
  • Follow Up HWC sessions are 30-45 minutes. You will begin to make health changes, find solutions to challenges, and gain new insights.
  • HWC is free of cost for communities served.
  • Call 217-762-1570 to schedule.
