Lauren Hatcher, MS, RD, LDN, CWPC, LiveWell Carolinas, used the 12 Lessons of Wellness and Weight Loss to create a custom program for her hospital employees.
A total of 3102 employees participated in the weight loss challenge.
They lost 9530 pounds in 10 weeks - that is like losing 63.5 people who weigh 150 pounds each!
481 employees lost 5% and 123 teams participated with 12 of them achieving 5% weight loss or more as a team
We created custom online materials for Lauren with her logo and she purchased all 24 lessons and used them online - employees watched PowerPoint shows and received emailed handouts each week.
Way to go Lauren and CHS for LiveWell Carolinas!

Here is what other customers are saying about the these modules:
"I have enjoyed your Lessons of Weight Loss materials and have used the Portion Control DVD with my groups in our multi-displinary Bariatrics program." Randall Feezell. M.D.
"Attached are our overall stats for the 10 week program. We had optional onsite weigh ins at about 14 locations (about of participants did this) but “Educational” materials (almost entirely your stuff) was provided online on our internal website for our locations spread far and wide around the Carolinas. 3102 employees lost 9530 pounds and now we are on our next set of 12 lessons. Thanks!" Lauren Hatcher, MS, RD, LDN, CWPC
"The presentation gives a great general overview of what healthy ideas need to be followed. We have added a show-and-tell portion to demonstrate what the lesson details. What might be nice to include in the presentation is more case studies as we went through each of those with our group and also look at more comparisons - people learn more when they can see the data in their own life. Including more numbers and comparing food products (and then we can bring in the example products) would assist in digesting the material better. Overall a great product for us with little extra input needed. Nice to have the framework done!"
"The handouts for your programs have been great. Thank you!"
"Materials have been very helpful and informative.
"Thank you for such a thorough and concise product! We received an abundance of positive feedback from those we presented the material to, and we will continue to utilize the courses." Krista Bobo.
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the wonderful added tidbits you are constantly sending us. The information is always useful, current, and fun. I recently purchased the wellness/weight management program from you and my boss (a nurse/educator) is still raving about how fantastic and versatile the program is. I am so anxious to start using it come Sept. So, thank you again, for the amazing job you do to keep us timely with our nutrition messages." Jane Hackett, MA, RD, CDE, LD
