Near North Health Education
and Promotion Program
The goal of Near North Health's Health Education and Promotion program is to improve health outcomes by empowering patients to be effective partners and to take an active role in managing their health. The program promotes healthy lifestyle and disease prevention/management through outreach, workshops, individual counseling, and single-session or multi-session group classes. These activities provide education, increase awareness, and offer support and self- management tools to assist participants in adapting healthy behaviors to manage their health and/or disease.
Activities are focused on the following topics:
• Type 1 & 2 High Blood Pressure/Hypertension
• High Cholesterol Overweight/ObesityStress
• Healthy Eating
We also offer free classes to help patients learn basic computer skills.
Through the Health Education Program, we are able to meet the critical needs of our patients by reducing the disparate morbidity and mortality related to an unhealthy lifestyle such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack, and stroke. We also incorporate Near North’s mission for acknowledging the influence of environmental, social, and cultural factors on one's health, and empower individuals to be healthy through education and skill building advocating for safe and healthy communities.
Near North Care Coordinators will:
• Work with patients to develop individualized healthcare plans
• Work with providers to schedule appointments and obtain required referrals for needed

• Participate in systematic efforts to monitor the appropriateness of treatment
