The hallmark of our education business is the Cancer Fit-CARE program, which details the role of exercise, nutrition, mind-body medicine and the marketing of cancer wellness programs within the wellness industry. Cancer Fit-CARE was created in 1999, now in it's Sixth Edition, this certification program is one of the nation’s top medically-based wellness education programs. It includes the Fit-CARE manual, online education modules and CD with presentations for instructors. The Certification Exam and return instructions are emailed directly to you.
From research to clinical practice, health club programs to national workshops, MedHealthFit has promoted wellness as an integral part of the standard of care for cancer recovery. With our latest edition of Cancer Fit-CARE, and our value-added programs with Step One Health and the Cancer Fit-CARE Coaching program, we are entering into a new era in exercise for cancer care.
Our mission is to bring cancer wellness exercise and nutrition standards of care programs to the forefront of the health and fitness industry.
Our goal is the change the way employers and the general public view and practice CPR training. Over the past few years the industry has moved from on-site 3-4 hour classes, to online training, and a simple “hands-only” session to complete the certification process.
Medhealthfit thinks there is a better, more interesting way to approach CPR education. We think that there are a few issues that should define this medical procedure when people sign up for a voluntary (or required) class.
#1 – The effectiveness of CPR is dependent upon your overall skills, and your willingness to “take charge” of the situation when you arrive on the scene. This means staying calm, directing others, and remembering information relating to the incident.
#2 – We look at CPR as part of a physiologic model as opposed to a purely safety model. We define aspects of the heart, and things like the electrophysiology of AED use in a simple and compelling way. In addition to teaching intervention techniques, we discuss the aspects of prevention whenever possible to reduce illness and injuries BEFORE they happen. This includes topics like choking, heat illness, and diabetes blood sugar control.
#3 – Most CPR classes are boring. Most students just want to take (or re-take) the class because they need to. Our method brings together many types of teaching methods, information, and FUN aspects to both make our CPR classes enjoyable, but to give you the TOOLS to remember what you need to know in the event you will ever need to use CPR and first aid training techniques.
