Overview

Session 1 in the Be Your Best: Health & Wellness Program focused on body composition, which is the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass.  Research has shown that body composition is directly related to health.  A simple bioimpedence analysis (BIA) test provides important information about your body's composition. The session on April 10th was designed to help participants know what each number meant and how to use them to improve their overall health.
