The foundation of practice at Marathon Health is set in the Health Coaching mindset. The member is put first, and the expectation is that their Marathon Health care team will seek to understand, actively listen and empower the patients to be their healthiest selves. With that, all Marathon Health care teams receive training in motivational interviewing.  

For those conducting health coaching appointments, the expectation and training should align with the rigorous standards, scope of practice, code of ethics and education set forth by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). Marathon Health has a NBHWC-approved training program that care teams can enroll in, and upon successful completion, they are eligible to sit for the board exam.
