Weight Loss Challenge Inspires Charles Place Apartments, Providence, RI Resident
Posted by Dinesh Kumar on March 19th, 2021
The goal of the Charles Place Apartments, located at 460 Charles Street in the heart of Providence, weight loss program is focused on managing diabetes more effectively. Working with Trine Healthcare, a Providence, RI based organization that brings a full slate of healthcare programs to affordable housing tenants, the program has initially helped, on average, to drop A1C levels from 7 to 5. Also, the top weight loss by residents was 14 pounds. Participants in the initial weight loss challenge ranging in ages from 45 to 71.
The program is scheduled to commence again this spring as social distancing measures are reduced.
“The weight loss/diabetes management program is a clear example of how wellness and healthcare programs can have a major impact for people with serious health conditions if delivered in a comfortable, accessible environment and lead by compassionate professionals,” noted Natasha Perez, Chief Executive Officer of Trine Healthcare. She added, “The residents who participated noted not only trimmer waistlines and reduced A1C levels, but a significant lift of well-being. We are delighted with the results and look forward to continuing this program and making a measurable difference in the lives of affordable housing residents.”
