We understand that these health challenges can be stressful and overwhelming, so we’re here to support you on your path toward wellness. Our goal is to help you live your best life.
Our team of health coaches, registered dietitians and certified diabetes educators will empower you with the tools and skills you need to make lasting lifestyle changes.
The Healthy Living Program is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. We are also certified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program. We currently lead classes for Northwell patients and health system employees.
Our patient-centered approach
All patients in the Healthy Living Program will start with a one-on-one, in-person appointment with a registered dietitian for nutritional counseling. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled based on personal goals and needs.
We focus on each patient’s unique challenges while applying the five pillars of health:
- Healthy eating
- Physical activity
- Managing stress
- Improving sleep
- Social connection
Locations & scheduling
Services are provided in Northwell Health physician practices in Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Language interpretation and sign language services are available for all appointments at no additional cost.
Most health insurance plans cover our services. Please note that coverage varies by plan, so we recommend that patients contact their insurance carrier for details on coverage for nutritional counseling.
We offer special assistance to those who do not have health insurance.
