Become a Healthy U Leader: Help Others and Yourself

December 27, 2021
– Join a team of committed, caring leaders to make a difference in your community by helping people:

  • Learn strategies to better self-manage chronic health conditions.
  • Improve their quality of life.
  • Feel empowered to take charge of their responses to health issues.

Healthy U is an evidence-based program helping participants to enhance their well-being and improve everyday health by learning skills throughout a six-week workshop. The workshops are for older adults who live with chronic health conditions, or are caregivers for those who do. No formal health education is required to be a leader, but rather the desire to help others and willingness to follow the scripted program. Two trained lay leaders facilitate each Healthy U workshop and model skills and activities in strict adherence to the training manuals provided.
