Indiana WISEWOMAN: A UHS Program

United Health Services received a grant from the Centers for Disease Control, in partnership with the Indiana State Department of Health, to offer free screening services to low-income, uninsured women through the WISEWOMAN program. WISEWOMAN stands for Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation. The screening will determine their risk for cardiovascular disease by testing blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes.
This is an excellent opportunity for women in north central Indiana to improve their health and quality of life through medical evaluations, weight loss programs and fitness memberships at no cost. Each woman enrolled in WISEWOMAN receives one-on-one counseling with our health professional that assesses their nutrition, family history, and activity level. Then steps are taken to reduce their risk for heart disease and diabetes.
The Diabetes Resource Center at UHS is pleased to be able to provide this valuable program that seeks to improve the health of women in northern Indiana.   

Women must be aged 35-64, be uninsured and live in Indiana.  Women are first be enrolled into the Breast and Cervical Cancer Program.  To enroll in this program, please call  (574) 314-5421 for English or (574) 314-5432 for Spanish and talk to one of our specialists.

Women found to have any factors that lead to heart disease are eligible for Healthy Behavior Support Services.  Gym memberships, health coaching, weight loss groups and more are available in our area free of charge to help women take charge of their health and hearts.
