JCA Baptist Wellness Connexion
JCA Baptist Wellness Connexion offers an innovative way to improve the health of Jewish Community Alliance members and the surrounding community.
Located inside the Jewish Community Alliance lobby, the Wellness Connexion office is an open and welcoming space staffed six days a week by Baptist Health wellness coaches (registered nurses) who provide JCA members and staff with a range of wellness services and programming designed to help them feel better and live well.
This initiative has received numerous gold awards by the JCC Association of North America which recognizes efforts across the country that hold maximum impact or potential for change within the community.
Our wellness coaches work alongside JCA staff to provide members:
- Personalized Wellness Assessment
- Health screening (blood pressure, body composition, glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides)
- Personalized coaching
- Health education programming
- Health care navigation services
In addition, health education events are held throughout the year at JCA featuring expert speakers from Baptist Health; these are open to the general public. Click here to learn more.
What is health coaching?
Health coaching is a partnership. Throughout the partnership, your health coach will be a supportive mentor, motivating you to make positive health choices that will impact your overall well-being and help you move from where you are to where you want to be.
