TOPS weight loss program becomes Healthy-U

UNCG’s Healthy-U, formerly Taking Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS), will return this fall beginning Wednesday, Aug. 27, from 12:05-12:55 p.m. in the Birch Room, EUC.

Are you looking to become a healthier you? Would you like to lose weight with a coach to guide you? Healthy-U is a recognized weight loss program proven to help people lose weight and keep it off.

You’re invited to participate in a research study designed to examine the effectiveness of health and wellness coaching on weight loss. All UNCG employees are eligible to participate. There is no cost to participate.

This research study will combine proven weight management strategies from the Healthy-U program with individual and small group health and wellness coaching sessions. Each week you will attend a one hour session.

Participation is free. Participants will not receive compensation or reimbursement for joining TOPS or for participating in the study. However, participants will receive Healthy-U program materials as part of their registration fee and health and wellness coaching services for free, a savings of up to $160 per month.
