Health Programs


It's very important for Community Care Physicians P.C. to not only treat people when they're sick, but to also keep our community healthy. We have created several unique health programs to help keep patients of any age active and well.


NICE


Community Care has developed the NICE Weight Transitions Program specifically for children and adolescents 11 to 18 years of age who want to get fit and stay fit. We have a team of professionals behind the program, including an expert panel of physicians, a health coach, personal trainer/sports nutritionist, and supporting staff, all committed to helping children improve their lifestyle.

This program is offered free of charge to Community Care Physicians' patients, as this is a continuation of your child's medical care. The NICE team works together to help each pre-teen/teen enrolled in the program establish individual goals and reach success. NICE will help your child achieve real life successes by reducing body fat percentages, increasing activity levels, increasing confidence and improving overall health. Classes consist of small groups (7 to 8 children). Contact your pediatrician or family physician at Community Care Physicians to enroll or contact NICE for more information.

WE Care


WE Care is a unique, medically supervised weight and exercise management program that was the first program of its kind in the Capital Region. The program provides a comprehensive approach to weight loss and fitness through medical management, nutrition education, fitness education and behavior change to provide a structured, supportive environment to help patients achieve long term health and wellness. The program is for adults 18 and older with a BMI over 30 or a BMI over 27 with other health problems related to weight, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and more. It is covered under most major insurance plans with a referral from your primary care doctor.

WE Care also offers exercise classes, meal replacement products and nutritional supplements for an additional charge. You do not need to be a part of the program to have access to these options.
