Health Education

VA has a number of ways for Veterans to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle and self-manage your own health.

Clinical staff provide ongoing health education during regularly scheduled outpatient clinic visits. Courses focus on health promotion, upcoming tests and procedures, medications, diagnoses and treatments. Staff can tell you about upcoming education classes that are available.

If you're admitted as an inpatient, clinical staff will begin the patient education process at the time of admission, during the hospital stay and at discharge. Our goal is to provide a hospital environment where patients continually receive updated health information, are able to ask questions about their health and can enjoy as comfortably as possible their stay in our facility.

MOVE! Program

MOVE! is a weight management, health promotion program designed to improve the lives of Veterans. MOVE!’s core ideas—encouraging healthy eating behavior, increasing physical activity, and promoting even small weight losses—are easy to follow and based on the latest in nutrition science. With the help of your MOVE! care team, you can reduce health risks, prevent or reverse certain diseases, improve your quality of life, and even live longer!
