“I initially enrolled in CHIP to see what I could do about my cholesterol which as I got older was slowly creeping up. Since then I have attended a CHIP program every year and find it motivating and rewarding to give back to the program. Since 2013 I have continued to follow the majority of the CHIP recommendations, the majority of the time. I continue to feel well with no health issues despite being older. I believe it is a program for everyone, not just those with health issues as I believe prevention is far better than cure. I try to dispel the myth that the program is only for those with health problems.
The thing I liked about CHIP was that it brought all the lifestyle recommendations together and reinforced each benefit to provide a wholistic program. The group aspect was motivating and supportive and helped me keep accountable. It also made it fun.”
