Take Time to LIV

For the third year, Shawnee Mission Health will offer the Take Time to LIV wellness program. Designed to reduce cardiovascular disease, this program has the potential to truly make a difference in the health of our community. Through a screening process, we will identify 15 to 18 women who are at risk for heart disease to take part in this intensive seven-month program that will begin in January.

Participation Criteria
Women accepted should exhibit at least three of the following risk factors:
  • High blood pressure of 130/85 or higher
  • A triglyceride level of 150 mg/dl or above
  • A fasting glucose of 100 mg/dl or above
  • An HDL cholesterol of less than 50 mg/dl
  • A waistline of 35 inches or more

If you have interest in participating in the Take Time to LIV program, please contact Libby Davis, Program Manager, at 913-632-4LIV. 

Program Components
Take Time to LIV is a seven-month wellness program featuring:
  • Comprehensive blood draw, blood pressure, abdominal girth and BMI will be obtained three times throughout the seven months, at the beginning, middle and end of the program.
  • One-on-one hour consultation with a personal wellness coach, followed by monthly consults. Each session will offer support and provide an opportunity to review goals.
  • Your choice of a seven-month fitness/workout membership with six personal training sessions, or a stipend you can use to join one of your choice. 
  • Six personal training sessions. 
  • Monthly dietitian counseling.
  • Grocery store tour to learn how to read food labels and discover new food choices with a dietitian. A class led by a dietitian in a cooking studio will also be offered.
  • Multiple educational sessions on topics such as nutrition, stress, healthy relationships, exercise, heart health and more.

Cost of the Program

Each participant will be required to pay a $375 initial deposit. Upon completion of the seven-month program, the fee will be refunded.
