Lifestyle Change Program Promotes Healthier Choices for Central Texans

March 15, 2019Austin, Texas – ARC is making it easier for Central Texans to reach their health and activity goals this year with ARC Healthiness, a lifestyle change program that gives each participant a customized plan as well as access to a team of health guides, RN health coaches, dieticians, and physicians for ongoing support, education, and dietary and exercise counseling.
