At Health Wise we have Community Health Workers (CHWs) who can meet with you in our offices or at your home. Our CHWs provide support and guidance as you work toward improving your health and well-being.

Progress is individually paced and the goals and tasks are reviewed, revised, and re-evaluated  regularly.

Health Wise is designed for patients to be pro-active in managing their own health care. We have a lending library of books, CDs, and DVDs  and individualized support materials to help you with your progress.
