What is a CHIP program like?
Before the educational program begins, a comprehensive health screen is conducted to establish risk factor levels of participants. The educational program is presented in two-hour sessions that meet:

Immediately following the program, the health screen is conducted again, and a detailed report is prepared for each participant that compares their risk factor levels before and after going through the program. Reports and course completion certificates are presented at a graduation program. See more details in the Course Content.
CHIP has over 50,000 graduates worldwide and sustains adherence to the program guidelines through an active CHIP alumni support organization.
