West Virginia WISEWOMAN Program
Clinical Services: West Virginia 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. West Virginia WISEWOMAN recruits both urban and rural providers to offer screening, risk reduction counseling, case management, hypertension management, and health coaching services.
Lifestyle Programs and Other Healthy Behavior Support Options: West Virginia refers WISEWOMAN clients to health coaching and community-based lifestyle programs including Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) and the National Diabetes Prevention Program.
