The LEAD Program is the result of a partnership between VIM Chattanooga, the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, PlantPure Communities, and the CVS Health Foundation.
CVS Health Foundation provided a $35,000 grant to develop and implement a wraparound education and nutrition program for VIM's patients with diabetes. The program wasbeen funded for a second year with a $20,000 grant.
Patients were recruited for a 14-day immersion course in plant-based nutrition (two meals per day provided by VIM), biometric screenings, cooking classes, health presentations, and group health coaching.
