The Labor/Management Healthcare Coalition of the Upper Midwest is proud to announce its endorsement of Health Dynamics, a leader in the Preventive Care field with a proven track record for Labor Union Health Funds over the last 22 years.

This early detection system allows for more effective treatment, improved health outcomes and reduced costs for treatment vs. detecting disease in later stages or after symptoms appear. The screening tests results are also used as the platform to help individuals focus on improving individual lifestyle choices in the areas of fitness, nutrition, and stress management, which are the foundation of long-term wellness.

PROGRAM PROVIDER ACCESSIBILITY: The Health Dynamics Program is already serving several Coalition Health Funds with great success. An existing provider network is in place, reaching across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, North Dakota and South Dakota. Their total network extends across 13 states and Health Dynamics will work directly with you to identify your membership/Fund needs, striving to develop or enhance the existing provider network as indicated by member population density .
