Our Commitment To You
Powering Health is dedicated to helping people take action as early as possible in their lives to help improve their chances of living a longer, healthier, happier and a fully fulfilled life.
The Powering Health approach is unique because it applies proven, and widely utilised, industrial continuous improvement methods (Lean Six Sigma) partnered with academically researched and tested human behaviour-change techniques. Powering Health partners with corporate, small group and individual clients to help evaluate current lifestyle and collaborate with you on developing fully personalised plans to help improve your chances of avoiding lifestyle-related (non-communicable) illnesses.
In short, our mission is to help people make small changes now that help to reduce risks of facing major health challenges later. Your health is your true wealth but there are also significant financial savings (both personal savings and also savings for health authorities) by taking a more proactive and preventative approach to personal health care. Powering Health is here to help you achieve those savings and we are excited to begin our partnership with you.
Our collaborative approach is designed to share ownership for developing your change plan and for putting you in control for influencing and driving a healthier lifestyle. We look forward to welcoming you to visit one of our upcoming information events to learn more.Upcoming Events
