Since 2009, thanks to a grant from the Anthem WellPoint Foundation, employers and local organizations have had access to the Kentuckiana Metro on the Move (KMOM) online wellness program. KMOM provided participants an easy to use, web-based physical activity and weight loss tracking program. This program assisted worksites, labor groups, and organizations in improving health.
Using individual and team virtual challenges, employers, individuals, and organizations increased physical activities in their environments, while reducing obesity in our community. Your dedication to health and well-being has been commendable.
When the KMOM site was developed, this online tracking program was an innovative system. The program tracked physical activity progress, converted multiple physical activities into steps, tracked weight loss and BMI over time, and allowed creation of custom challenge routes to compete with other users individually or in teams. Today many employers have created their own websites and individual users have apps available to them either online or from their smartphones.
With the availability of many physical activity tracking programs, the Kentuckiana Metro on the Move program and website will close and be discontinued on December 31, 2012. The Kentuckiana Health Collaborative website will not be affected and will remain active.
We appreciate your involvement in the Kentuckiana Metro on the Move program over the years. We wish you continued success in promoting healthy lifestyles in our community.
