"Inactivity, poor and over-nutrition, smoking, drug and alcohol abuse, inappropriate medication, stress, unsafe sexual behavior, inadequate sleep, risk-taking and environmental exposure (for example, sun, chemicals and the built environment) are significant modern causes of disease. New and adaptive approaches to health management are needed to deal with these complex factors."
(Egger, Binns, & Rossner, 2011).
At the DC Office of Preventive Care, we focus on the modern lifestyles that lead to disease. Our professionals and interns will work with you individually and take care of your lifestyle needs.
The assessment taken and the information provided from the sessions can be utilized to maintain a high quality of life without significant health complications. Progress on adequate nutrition and body composition can be determined through subsequent sessions based on client’s personal wellness profile.
