Community and Adult Enhancement Programs
Vision: Empower community members to make informed decisions about personal health choices through promising practices and evidenced based programs, access to care, and information regarding healthy behaviors. Some our current adult focused programs include:
- Living Longer, Living Stronger- This program is attended by people with different chronic conditions. In classes, individuals learn how to manage, maintain, and increase their life activities. You might be interested in this program if you are an adult age 55 or older with an ongoing health condition. You’ll get the support you need, find practical ways to deal with pain and fatigue, discover better nutrition and exercise choices, understand new treatment choices, and learn better ways to talk with your doctor and family about your health.
