Health coaches are a valuable part of the collaborative community care team, that support participants throughout their journey.  Bredesen Protocol Trained Health Coaches partner with participants, providing the support, resources, and education to adopt the behavioral changes required preventing and reversing cognitive decline.  To that end, Apollo Health, in partnership with the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (FMCA), wants to ensure you have all the necessary tools and training for you and your clients.

NBHWC provides several approved courses for certification (FMCA is one of them), and you can find those here.
