“New" Virtual and Telephonic Health Coaching and Nutrition Counseling
“New" Virtual and Telephonic Health Coaching and Nutrition Counseling: What's the Difference and How to Register
Make yourself and your health a priority by taking advantage of virtual or telephonic health coaching and nutrition counseling offered through Kent State's wellness partner, Be Well Solutions. These services are confidential, complimentary and unlimited for full-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff.*
What is Health Coaching and Nutrition Counseling?
These services are similar in that they are individualized sessions conducted with one of Be Well Solutions' certified health professionals that is designed to help you take meaningful steps toward your wellness goals. You get to choose the topic you want to discuss, and your health coach or registered dietitian will provide support and accountability through an evidence-based approach.
Health coaching topics may include, but are not limited to, physical activity/building an exercise plan, stress management, mindfulness, healthy lifestyle and tobacco cessation. Nutrition counseling sessions are provided by licensed and registered dietitians (RD) and focus on topics such as weight management, nutrition for an active lifestyle, nutrition to support chronic disease management, navigating food intolerances, and more.
NEW - Virtual Face-to-Face Coaching Available Starting July, 2020
Virtual "face-to-face" health coaching is now available as an alternative to traditional onsite coaching. Virtual coaching sessions are held on a video conferencing platform and last 25 minutes, during which you will work one-on-one with a RD to discuss strategies for meeting your wellness goals.
There are currently three virtual coaching dates available for scheduling on the Be Well portal, and they are July 8, August 4 and August 26. Telephonic coaching availability varies -- check the portal for available dates and times. Whether telephonic or virtual, both health coaching and nutrition counseling are also eligible for 10 Tier 2 wellness reward points per session. Be Well will apply points after each session.
