Step 1: Discover
LifeStart Expos is a community event designed to offer participants a FREE “health checkup”. It is the best way to connect with people for the first time and help them discover information that might indicate risk factors for certain chronic conditions.
LifeStart Expos can be arranged at a public venue, hospital, or work place and offers people a free health risk assessment, one-on-one lifestyle education, and wellness counseling by LifeStart coaches on everything from diabetes to high blood pressure.
The lifestyle education focuses on nine factors related to disease prevention and physical and mental health. These are: Liquids, Interpersonal Relationships, Food, Exercise, Sunlight, Temperance, Air, Rest, and Trust in Divine Power.
Participants are counseled based on the results of their health risk assessment and receive an invitation to attend LifeStart seminars.
Health screening includes:
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Blood Pressure
- Blood Sugar
- Health Risk Assessment
- Lifestyle Education
- Wellness Counseling
Since numerous studies have shown that lifestyle-related diseases are largely preventable, with their roots in tobacco, alcohol, lack of exercise, and poor diet, an interest form is used at LifeStart Expos to collect personal contact information and preferences on a number of health topics. This data can easily be used to send follow-up invitations to attend LifeStart Seminars community health intervention programs and provide additional support.
