Vermont WISEWOMAN Program
Clinical Services: Vermont WISEWOMAN works with health care providers to provide cardiovascular disease risk factor screenings to low-income, underinsured/uninsured women between the ages of 40 to 64 years. These screenings include blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol as well as assessing weight, medical history, quality of life indicators, tobacco use, diet/nutrition and physical activity. Ladies First works with all providers in the state to offer screening, risk reduction counseling, case management, hypertension management and health coaching services. The program focuses on providers who serve low income individuals by working closely with the state’s network of federally qualified health centers, rural and free clinics.
Lifestyle Programs and Other Healthy Behavior Support Options: Vermont WISEWOMAN offers health coaching options through regional health teams. The program also refers WISEWOMAN clients to community-based lifestyle programs including the National Diabetes Prevention Program, Curves Complete, Weight Watchers, and V-Trim.
