MOVE Program

MOVE! is a health promotion and weight loss program specifically designed for Veterans that assists them with making life-changing decisions related to diet and exercise. Veterans meet with certified coordinators to assess their current statusĀ and make plans for altering unhealthy behaviors and habits. Group classes, individual counseling, phone meetings, and secure email meaasging via MyHealtheVet are available to assist Veterans in meeting their health and dietary needs. MOVE staff help Veterans meet their health goals through education on nutrition, physical activity, behavior modification, stress management, and goal setting. Approximately 78% of Veterans are now considered overweight or obese, conditions that contribute to the development of diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, sleep apnea, and gall stones. This innovative and proactive VA program seeks to help Veterans develop healthy lifestyle habits that will help them prolong their lives and enjoy a better quality of living.
