The Healthy Lifestyle Center- HLC

The HLC is a community-based resource center focused on improving the health and well-being of individuals in our community. We* do this by providing information, consultation, and support for making healthy lifestyle choices and adopting healthy behaviors. Services include individual meetings related to diet, physical activity, behavior change, mental health, medical education, navigating socio-economic challenges, hearing, and speech.

We offer all of these services for FREE and you do not need insurance. We also offer health-related assessment services, including an audiology clinic, and provide healthy lifestyle workshops and programs. We work with the individual, in support of their care by their healthcare provider, and help connect people with existing services and resources in the community. Our goal is to provide long-term support for people desiring to make positive changes to their health and well-being.

The HLC is not a medical facility nor do we provide healthcare services.

Indiana is in the bottom 20% of national health rankings, and Delaware County is near the bottom of state health rankings. Six in ten people in the US live with one or more chronic diseases. These diseases negatively impact health, well-being, and quality of life, and are the leading causes of disability, high health care costs, and early death.

However, the evidence is clear that most chronic diseases can be prevented by living a healthy lifestyle. The HLC is here to support improving the health and well-being of our community.
