The Ornish Reversal Program is nationally recognized—through the results of more than 35 years of peer-reviewed, published research—for reversing the progression of heart disease. The program has been proven to undo heart disease by dealing with the root causes and not just its effects. Participants that qualify for the program will attend 18, four-hour sessions over 9 weeks that include education on the four key elements of the Ornish Reversal Program - fitness, nutrition, stress management, and love and support. The combined effect of all four lifestyle elements makes the transformative difference. Over the years, participants have reported that they no longer have chest pain, they have more energy, their cholesterol levels and blood pressure have lowered, and they have kept off weight lost while taking part in the program. Participants have also reported that they have been able to reduce the amount of medication they took for years.
If you are an enthusiastic and engaging educator, you can share your knowledge with Ornish Program participants. As the Stress Management Specialist, you will be responsible for implementing the stress management elements of the Ornish Program. You will monitor the response of each participant to the stress management intervention and communicate issues to other the Ornish Program Director. You will participate in the development of the interdisciplinary treatment plan to ensure the quality and clinical effectiveness of the program and the safety of each participant. We are looking for someone with fantastic communication and teaching skills and a commitment to delivering the highest quality health care to Hawai‘i’s people.
