At UpLift, we work to provide not only clinics but also wrap around and holistic health services in our stores. We place dietitians, nutritionists, community health resource navigators, benefits access counselors and more in our stores that we use to support the health of the community. Localizing these services facilitates ease of access for underserved communities and we recognize the interconnectedness of these services. Nutritionists and dietitians offer store tours, label reading, and shopping challenges to learn how to shop for healthy items on a budget. If that is not enough we can refer them to our in-store benefits counselors and they can help customers sign up for SNAP or other benefits to help ease financial burdens for the community.
As the place where people choose the products that will affect their diet and nutrition, a supermarket is an ideal location to provide health services. Our Health Solution division includes our health clinics and wrap around health services. We promote healthy lifestyles through increasing access to affordable healthcare and providing opportunities for free nutrition education.
