Ranked #1 in the Country, The Jameson Hospital Dean Ornish Program offers New Year Sessions of The Spectrum Lifestyle Improvement Program

Date: 12/22/2011

Jameson Hospital is offering a program for new healthy habits this new year with a six-week lifestyle improvement program that explores the spectrum of Nutrition, Exercise, Stress Management & Social Support to impact total well being. The Spectrum is a scientifically proven program to feel better, live longer, lose weight and gain health.

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.

In a recently released 2011 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.

“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,” comments Lori Brothers, Program Director of the Jameson Dean Ornish Program.

The six-week program is being offered in two cohorts for early 2012: Wednesday evenings beginning January 4, 2012 as well as Monday mornings beginning February 20, 2012. For more information and to register for the program, call 724.656.4660 or visit www.jamesonhealth.org/ornish.
