Perseverance Health & Wellness Coaching is dedicated to partnering with organizations that offer wellness programs  to under-served communities. Low income populations are at risk for various diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease and obesity. Good nutrition is an important component of overall wellness, disease prevention and weight management.

 

We teach strategies on where to shop for healthy foods, how to prepare them and sessions on how food choices can make a huge impact on longevity of life and quality of life. Our programs are designed to include hands-on activities with class participants from various backgrounds. We offer things like question and answer sessions, in which community members can ask questions and get nutrition information that is easy to digest, and can be effectively applied even in complex situations.
