According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, almost two out of every three adult Missourians are overweight or obese.
These conditions know no boundaries and impact both genders, all races and ethnicities, all socioeconomic groups, adults, and children.
Failing to maintain a healthy weight can have serious health consequences including chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes that compromise the quality and length of life. Healthful eating and regular physical activity are two critical components in achieving and maintaining good health.
University of Missouri Health Care's wellness program, HealthyU, is a combination of both education and engagement to help you better understand and implement the two critical components in achieving and maintaining good health: fitness and nutrition.
