Dr. Janine Darby, board certified in Obesity and Family Medicine, best-selling author of “Get Your Sexy Back,” and an inspiring weight-loss success story herself, employs an approach that’s highly medical and uniquely personal. Patients rave about her thorough health screenings, compassion, and one-on-one, customized programs.
Now, Dr. Darby is bringing her expertise and empathy to corporations – thanks to a satisfied patient and CEO who asked her to start a wellness program for his employees.
Sedentary from working from home during the pandemic, his workforce had been struggling. They felt isolated and lethargic. Scales were inching up. He worried about their health, decreasing productivity, and burnout. In a tight labor market, he feared The Great Resignation would spread to his company.
With his firm’s new wellness partnership with Lifestyle Changes, he stopped worrying. As he invests in his staff, they become more invested in the company. Lifestyle Changes Corporate Wellness Program is tailored to different workforces. Generally, each employee receives an individualized health assessment and wellness action plan created by Dr. Darby and participates in regular virtual wellness events she leads. Sessions begin and end with guided meditation to help keep everyone grounded. And those who need extra help losing weight can enroll in Dr. Darby’s individual weight loss programs at a reduced price.
Over time, emotional and physical loads become lighter. High blood pressure and stress melt away. Restful sleep is restored. Happier in themselves, they become happier and more productive at work.
“Most corporate wellness programs are run by the business; they’re not physician-led,” says Dr. Darby. “That’s what sets mine apart. I understand what humans need, what their bodies need, and what the individual health issues are.”
In the coming months, Dr. Darby plans to add yoga, more recipes and cooking tips, a meal delivery service for busy clients and patients, and a library of healthy-tips videos. She also has a proprietary collection of vitamins and supplements to complement her treatment plans and corporate programs.
