HealtheSteps™ Program Update

We are happy to report HealtheSteps has continued to grow over the past 8 months since initial launch in September 2020. HealtheSteps is a free, virtual 6-month healthy lifestyle program delivered to adults (18+) interested in making changes to their lifestyle. 

We currently have 56 trained coaches across Ontario and British Columbia delivering the HealtheSteps program to 121 participants interested in improving their lifestyle. Coaches include undergraduate medical students at UBC and Western, graduate and undergraduate kinesiology students at UBC, Western, and York University, as well as primary care nurse practitioners. 

We are currently seeking coaches. If interested in joining the HealtheSteps team as a coach, please register on our website: 

Participant Referrals 

Participants are referred to the program through their family physician or through self-referral. We are currently recruiting participants for the HealtheSteps program. 

If you are interested in referring your patients to our program, we will provide you with recruitment assets (i.e. digital waiting room posters, social media posts, handouts) that you can provide to your patients. Your patients can then contact the research team through our website: to join the program!
