Combine the best practices of Canyon Ranch Institute’s health and wellness experience with Urban Health Plan’s expertise in providing care to underserved communities and you have the Canyon Ranch Institute Life Enhancement Program (LEP) at Urban Health Plan.
The LEP is a six-week health promotion and prevention program that focuses on improving participants’ health literacy and increasing prevention. Using an integrative approach to health and wellness, patients are taught to embrace a life of wellness by incorporating physical activity, nutrition, behavior change, spirituality and stress reduction techniques.
Patients are referred by their providers and work with UHP health professionals – including a physician, nutritionist, physical therapist, social worker, registered nurse, and pastor.
LEP patients work out in a wellness center which includes state-of-the-art fitness equipment, as well as space and equipment for yoga, meditation, and relaxation. Exercise classes are led by a certified trainer.
