ACE Subject Matter Expert 
As an ACE Subject Matter Expert on Health Coaching Vice President of Client Services & Wellness, Michele Wong was asked to participate in the most recent ACE Role Delineation Study for Health Coaching. The Study is conducted every five years and brings together industry thought leaders from fitness, wellness and medical backgrounds to determine the qualifications, skills, and knowledge needed for those pursuing a carrier as a health coach. It's clear based on this expert panel there is an emerging demand for health coaching to not only link medical and lifestyle interventions but as a best practice for improving engagement and driving health outcomes. The results of the Role Delineation Study will be used by ACE as the  "blueprint" for the role of the health coach and the certification requirements for the next five years.
