Q. What is it?

A. The mission of JCA/Baptist Health Wellness Connexion is to improve the health and well-being of our members and community by assessing risks, encouraging healthy behaviors and complementing care.


Q. How does it work?

A. Click on the "Wellness Assessment" button below. Take a confidential, online Personal Wellness Assessment developed by Vanderbilt School of Medicine. At the end of the screening, you can schedule an appointment with a Wellness Coach.

Q. What will happen at a coaching session?

A. The Wellness Coach will review your wellness assessment report to help determine areas of health improvement and set goals to live a healthy lifestyle.

The coaches are able to help connect you with a primary care physician in your area if you need one.
