Level Up Program

A program to encourage healthy lifestyles and wellness for our patients and their families.

The providers at Pediatrics of Northeastern Pennsylvania have put together a 6-week program to encourage healthy lifestyles and wellness for our patients and their families.

The program, which is FREE OF CHARGE, is open to patients of Pediatrics of Northeastern Pennsylvania who have been identified by our providers and are interested in learning more about how to optimize their health and wellness. Participants will be divided into 2 groups for most of our sessions, ages 6-11 years old and ages 12 years old and up.

Our program will consist of 6-sessions and your attendance is requested at all 6 sessions. Sessions will cover a variety of nutrition and exercise topics to help our patients to focus on healthy lifestyles. Parents are invited to participate in all of our sessions for all of our participants, but it is required that a parent be present for children in the 6-11 yo group.

***  Official schedule for each 6 week session of Level Up will be provided to participants at or just prior to the first session.  

Reminder:  Mask use is needed whenever indoors for the Level Up Program.  

The program itself will be funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Medical Society and Highmark Blue cross/Blue Shield.   If the providers deem that wellness exams, office rechecks, blood pressure checks, or laboratory evaluation is due, these services would be scheduled separately from the program events and submitted to your health insurance and any co-pays or deductibles apply.  

Incentives will be provided at many of our sessions and a final incentive will be available to those who complete all 6 sessions.  Following your completion of the program, we will schedule a follow up examination at Pediatrics of NEPA with one of our providers to help encourage continuation of the healthy lifestyle lessons taught in our program.

If you are interested in the program, please download and complete the registration form and return it to our office using our patient portal, faxing to (570) 558-9051 or dropping it off at our office .  If you have any questions, please call the office and ask to speak with Dr. Georgetti, Dr. Troy, or Dawn Strong.  

Thank you for the interest in Level Up!
