The ELM Program: Eat Well, Love Better, Move More

The ELM Program is an innovative lifestyle change program created by a multidisciplinary team of practitioners at Rush. The program was designed to help improve the health of patients aiming to prevent diabetes and heart disease. Participants of the program lost weight, improved blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduced stress in their daily lives. Healthy living is not about deprivation; it's about enjoying life.
