ELIA Wellness & Lifestyle Medicine
In 2020, Adventist HealthCare welcomed ELIA Wellness to the family. ELIA Wellness is dedicated to promoting optimal health and tackling chronic disease through evidence-based programs and empowering the community to better health, healing and hope. As a health promotion charity, ELIA Wellness promotes whole-person health through the 7 Dimensions of Wellness, and initiatives include extensive health education resources, events, health assessments and fitness programs. These are delivered online and face-to-face through local partners, as well as the ELIA Lifestyle Medicine Centre located at the San.
