Creighton study: Money management may bring weight loss, better health | News

(Omaha) — Shedding financial debt may be an alternative to trying to shed weight, according to a Creighton University study.

Julie Kalkowski, executive director of the Financial Hope Collaborative in Creighton’s Heider College of Business, says they found taking control of your finances could result in several health benefits, including weight loss and a decreased risk for developing chronic diseases.

“The women in the program said their demand for other social services, outside help, was reduced by 23-percent,” Kalkowski says. “That’s also a big deal because social services are slammed right now because so many people are in trouble.”
