CHIP program

Thanks to Janice for referring me to her CHIP (Coronary Health Improvement Project).  She gave me a link that is well worth viewing.

It appears that these folks are doing great things for people.  And I do think that is much more important to work with other like minded people who have common visions and goals than to argue too much about what is optimal.

The video above emphasizes that the main issue is one of lifestyle modification, and they seem to be doing a great job with that.  Who cares if the program would be better without oil if nobody would do it, so I applaud what they are doing.  I would be proud to be associated with these folks and wonder what if anything they are doing in Sacramento.

  1. I heartily agree. I think one of the strongest assets of the CHIP program would be the sense of community that is intentionally built.

    INteresting - I just randomly chose to listen to Doug Lisle's Pleasure Trap presentation and he was honest about the difficulties of sticking to the healthy lifestyle. It does seem the CHIP program has factored that in. Certainly can't argue with their huge success in Rockford!

    One more thanks to you, Bob and Farley! Fabulous role models!
