About the program
When it comes to metabolic disease, lifestyle changes can be powerful medicine. But changing long-established behaviors on your own can be a daunting challenge. That’s where our Metabolic Health group program comes in. Whether you have hypertension, prediabetes/diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, or metabolic syndrome, we’ll help you take control of your metabolic disease by making therapeutic lifestyle changes you can stick to.
What to expect
Led by One Medical providers and health coaches, this program consists of six 2-hour sessions (every other week) at our group visits space in the Financial District. We’ll provide resources and information on diet and exercise changes — designed to address your specific diagnosis — and teach you effective strategies to enable, advance, and maintain these changes to improve your metabolic and cardiovascular health.
Our community-based approach focuses on coaching to change behaviors and troubleshoot challenges — with the added benefit of peer-to-peer learning and support.
The topics covered include:
- Goal setting and encouraging a growth-oriented mindset
- Eating a balanced, plant-based
- Getting regular exercise
- Stress management
- Improving sleep
- Self-monitoring of lifestyle and biometrics

Mondays, January 28, February 11, 25, March 11, 25, and April 8

Each session is billed to your insurance as a medical visit, so you’ll only be responsible for your your regular copay, coinsurance, or deductible depending on your insurance benefits. Please check your insurance policy or reach out to your insurance provider to better understand your costs.
