The Jameson Hospital Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease delivers The Spectrum as a modified version of the program that is based on the clinically-proven research by Dr. Dean Ornish. It is designed for participants to begin to explore making lifestyle changes based on their health issues and preferences. 

“Many people like to review this important health information before heading into the holidays so they can set goals, look and feel better, and improve their health and well being,” comments Lori Brothers, Program Director of the Jameson Dean Ornish Program. “The Spectrum can be tailored to suit almost anyone. A healthy lifestyle is an advantage that anyone can benefit from to improve the quality of life and often longevity of life, as well.”

In a released Outcomes Report by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, participants in the Jameson Dean Ornish Program ranked number one overall in weight loss, lower body mass index and increased exercise minutes per week.  Jameson’s patients experienced reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressures and ranked as the top outcomes performer of the nine sites in the nation conducting the on-going research project of the heart disease reversal program.
