MOVE! Weight Management Program
VA’s MOVE! and TeleMOVE! weight management programs encourage Veterans to lose weight and live healthier by taking simple steps every day. If you are carrying extra weight, losing weight and keeping it off can be one of the best things you can do to protect your health. Excess weight puts you at risk for problems like heart disease, diabetes, some cancers, sleep apnea and gallstones. The best way to manage your weight is to eat wisely and be as physically active as possible.
You can join the MOVE! program by calling the VA MOVE! coordinator at 518- 626-6871.
Or you can call TeleMOVE! at 1-877-619--0106, option 1 and fill out the MOVE!11 questionnaire. You’ll need to keep the retrieval code from your questionnaire results so we can design a weight management plan just for you. With TeleMOVE! you’ll track your daily activities using an electronic device that reports your progress to a TeleMOVE! care coordinator. You can have a lifestyle coach call you on a regular basis to keep you motivated. The hours of operation are Monday 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday-Friday 7:30 am to 4:00 p.m.
Better health begins when you make the first MOVE!
