What role do Health Coaches serve?
70% of American adult deaths are caused by chronic disease.
About half of American adults had at least one chronic disease as of 2012.
1 in 4 adults had two or more chronic health conditions.
Unhealthy diet and lifestyle choices are the leading cause of chronic disease.
Fewer than 1/8 of routine physician visits include any nutritional counseling.
86% of all healthcare spending in 2010 was for people with one or more chronic medical conditions, most of which are preventable.
Only 3% of the US healthcare budget is spent on preventing diseases each year.
1 in 4 American adult deaths each year are from heart disease, making it the leading cause of death for both men and women.
Nearly half of Americans have at least 1 of the 3 risk factors for heart disease.
More than 2 in 3 adults and about 1 in 3 children and adolescents ages 6 to 19 are overweight or obese.
More than 1 in 3 men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lives.
Approximately 1 in 11 people have diabetes in the US. 25% of them do not know they have diabetes.
More than 1 in 3 adults have prediabetes. 90% of them do not know they have prediabetes.
1 in 3 American children born in 2000 are expected to develop diabetes over the course of their lifetime, based in current trends.
Dental cavities are the most common chronic disease in American children aged 6 to 19 years.
They are about five times as common as asthma and seven times as common as hay fever.

I have a Doctor. Why do I need a Health Coach?
Fewer than 25% of practicing physicians believe they have sufficient training to talk to patients about diet or physical activity.11
60–80% of medical schools are teaching far less nutrition than what is recommended, with some requiring no nutrition instruction at all.
The number of hours devoted to nutrition education in medical schools has declined since the 1980s.
50% of graduating medical students and 88% of instructors indicated that students at their medical schools need more nutrition instruction.12
Nutrition education typically occurs during the first 2 years of medical school as opposed to during the clinical years when nutrition concepts and skills could be applied more directly to clinical problem-solving.
Dietary and lifestyle modifications don’t happen in a single session, making it hard for doctors to help their patients implement sustainable changes.
Nutrition education during patient visits takes time that many doctors feel they don't have.
Did you know that as a Health Coach you can partner with medical professionals in their offices, wellness centers, and fitness facilities to co-create wellness programs for their patients? This benefits both your coaching practice by bringing in clients and helps relieve the heavy burden on doctors in serving their growing patient demands.
As a coach, I put the power back in your hands.
