The BeWise Program
The BeWise Program provides cardiovascular health screening and health coaching to eligible Utah women. BeWise is for women ages 40-64 who are mid-to-low-income, underinsured, or uninsured.
The goal of BeWise is to provide women with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities to improve their diet, physical activity, and other lifestyle behaviors to prevent, delay, and control cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.
The Utah BeWise Program receives money from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention to provide these services. Utah is one of only 24 BeWise (also known as WISEWOMAN) programs funded by the CDC.
