We're proud to be a part of Win With Wellness!

Win With Wellness is a community-based wellness initiative aiming to help people live healthy lives through better food choices and regular exercise. Participants learn more about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity, and tools are provided to help reach goals in these areas.

Healthy eating behaviors are encouraged through the Taking Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS®) program, a national weight-loss support group that's helped millions of people for over 60 years with weight loss and improving health by focusing on improvement, rather than perfection. Another element of Win With Wellness is the Heart To Heart program, where educators help participants build skills for healthier eating and getting more physical activity.

The Win With Wellness team of healthcare and wellness specialists is available for community-based presentations about how to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Presentations can be arranged at almost any time or location, including worksites.

Businesses or groups interested in setting up a TOPS® group or looking for a speaker on a health and wellness topic can call 1-866-590-8499 to arrange.

As one of the Win With Wellness partners, FHN is pleased to be working with the Stephenson County Health Department, the Carroll County Health Department, the Monroe Clinic, the United Way of Northwest Illinois, and the National Center for Rural Health Professions and Department of Family and Community Medicine (UICOM-R) at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford to make this important wellness program a success!
