Meet Hancock Well-Being’s LightenUp Program

LightenUp Program2022-02-22T21:58:06+00:00

Obesity is a growing epidemic, and more and more Americans are turning to diets and wellness programs to help shed extra pounds and increase their quality of life.

We know that is easier said than done.

Launched in February of 2020, Hancock Well-Being’s LightenUp program has its foundation in the holistic philosophy of lifestyle medicine. Led by physician Lori Deemer and her team – a health coach, exercise specialist, registered dietician, and licensed social worker, this all-inclusive and broad-based program provides real results to those who need help losing weight with nutrition and exercise program aspects individually tailored.

Deemer is passionate about helping patients achieve measurable results by building healthy habits and routines that can help them to better their quality of life.

Kick-Start Weight Loss with Big Impact Lifestyle Changes

By implementing big impact lifestyle changes such as understanding nutrition, seeking therapy for underlying issues and working one on one with a health coach, the LightenUp program can help you kick-start a journey toward better health.


The six major pillars of lifestyle medicine are addressed within the framework of the LightenUp program: stress management, nutrition, physical activity, supportive relationships, sleep, and reduction of harmful substances. With multidisciplinary support, Deemer’s team can help you get excited about your health and to feel empowered to take wellness and lifestyle choices into your own hands.

How it Works: Hancock Well-Being’s LightenUp Program

LightenUp is a 9 to 10-month program that can be extended as maintenance for as long as needed. For the first six weeks of the program, patients meet weekly with various team members then, afterward, come on a biweekly basis. This adds up to about 22 visits, each one meant to optimize the six pillars of lifestyle medicine. It is Deemer’s hope that patients will feel like they are becoming free to be in their bodies and proud of themselves for making these huge lifestyle changes. With her team’s support, anything is possible.

LightenUp is financially accessible to everyone, with a low cost of $200 to start followed by a $100 monthly fee. Copays may apply depending on insurance, and the program’s team works hard to make sure the accessibility aspect is intact by applying a cap so that no one will have to pay excessive amounts financially to get the help needed. The LightenUp program meets on Thursday afternoons from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Interested? Call 317-468-4774 or email lightenup@hancockregional.org for more information or to register. Take your health into your own hands and get ready to meet a healthier you!
