How it works
Once enrolled in the program, each person will receive his/her own health coach and schedule their first coaching session. These live, personal weekly meetings with your health coach take just 15 minutes through Skype or Facetime.
Aside from your coaching sessions, you’ll track your food intake and exercise using Kurbo’s app. That way your coach can see how you’re doing each week and help encourage you to keep up the good work or make adjustment to meet your goals.
Kurbo also includes a variety of tools and resources to help along the way. These include:
- A workbook to track your progress
- Ongoing newsletters
- Exercise tips
- And more!
You need a Castlight account in order to enroll in Kurbo. Don’t have one yet? Visit the Get Castlight page to learn how.
Then, earn points for taking certain actions and talking with a Coach once you or your kids enroll in the program.
IT’S FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL
There is no cost for you, your covered spouse/domestic partner or your children to participate. Your Kurbo Health Coaching program is personalized and your results are completely private. Kurbo will keep your individual information confidential. Abbott will only be provided with group aggregate reporting to understand how participants are using the program and improving. Abbott never sees individual results.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
All Abbott employees and covered spouses/domestic partners are eligible to participate and earn rewards. Plus, you can enroll your children between 5 and 26 years old.
