Profile by Sanford: Doing Health Differently

#liveyourbestlife. That's what Profile by Sanford wants their members to do. And they help people get there.

They're changing the way people approach health and weight loss- and it works. They assist members to create personalized nutrition, activity and a lifestyle that helps people lose weight and keep it off.

Here's how they're different:

1) They provide 1-on-1 coaching

2) They're science-based (and use a precise DNA test, taking guesswork out of decisions)

3) They're backed by one of the largest non-profit health care providers in the USA: Sanford Health.

Thanks, Profile by Sanford, for sponsoring After Dark for 2019. We're excited to have you!!
