MOVE!® Weight Management Program

Description

MOVE! is a national weight management program designed by the Veterans Health Affairs (VHA) National Center for Health Promotion & Disease Prevention to help veterans lose weight, keep it off, and improve their health.

This Web site contains information about the MOVE! program for veterans and health professionals, and includes program handouts, success stories, healthy living messages, and other resources.

Only veterans receiving care in the Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system can enroll in the MOVE! Program. However, the materials available on this Web site can be used as a tool to help non-VA patients manage their weight. Materials include a lifestyle questionnaire (which upon completion provides an individualized patient report as well as a report for the health care provider) and patient handouts addressing nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral health.
