Profile by Stanford is a weight loss and nutrition program developed in 2011 by top medical experts. The Owensboro location opened in 2019 and has already helped the city lose nearly 10,000 pounds.
Sanford Health is one of the world’s largest non-profit health care providers, and they pride themselves on making weight loss simple and sustainable. Since its conception in 2012, the program has helped over 185,000 members successfully lose over 2.5 million pounds.
“The team designed Profile to make weight loss simple and sustainable by pairing a science-backed approach to weight loss with one-on-one health coaching,” said Jamal Thruston, who specializes in community outreach.
In addition to the coaching program, Profile also overs a storefront for anyone who would like additional healthy food options to make weight loss and healthy eating easier.
“Our coaching program offers an individualized nutrition plan backed by the providers at Sanford Health and a certified and degreed health coach,” Thruston said. “They will provide you with accountability and empower you with the tools to make this a long-term lifestyle change.”
The storefront is open to members and the public alike and features a wide array of foods. Those foods range from low-calorie pizza crusts, protein bars, shakes, and pre-cooked meats to their recently launched Profile Fresh meal prep service.
Thruston added that the Owensboro community had played a pivotal role in their success.
“We’re very grateful for the opportunity to be in this incredible city,” he said. “All of our current coaches are from the Owensboro area, and a Profile store offers the chance to strongly impact our community with new tools and resources to stay healthy — which is important now more than ever.”
Profile offers employee wellness services and serves as a resource for local physicians.
“We’re happy that we can give back to our Owensboro community,” Thruston said. “Come by or call us for a free consultation to learn more about our program.”
Profile is located at 2928 Heartland Crossing Suite D and is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information on what they have to offer, visit their website here or search Profile By Sanford on Facebook and Instagram.
“What makes us different is you get an individualized plan that’s safe and effective built from the providers at Sanford Health,” Thruston said. “We’re built to make this journey simple — especially if you are a busy individual who finds it challenging to make time for a lifestyle change.”
