The Camden Clark Health and Wellness Center is the only approved site in the area to offer the PEIA Weight Management Program. This program is designed to help you lose weight and improve your health. As an exclusive provider, the Camden Clark Health and Wellness Centerwill provide participants with a comprehensive weight management plan suited to their unique and individual needs. You will receive the services of a dietitian, an exercise physiologist and personal trainers while gaining access to a fitness facility meeting PEIA’s quality criteria.
Why is PEIA Offering this Benefit?
