Make a Difference in Your Community – Train to be a Healthy U Leader

The Area Agency on Aging is seeking individuals who want to make a difference in their community by helping others discover the importance of disease self-management. Please review the training flyer, and if you have the qualities listed there, consider training this June to be a Healthy U leader.


We offer workshops throughout our region and leaders are needed in all nine counties, but preference will be given to leaders residing in or willing to travel to the following counties of our region: Champaign, Darke, Logan, Miami, Preble, and Shelby.


There are three types of Healthy U workshops offered — chronic disease, diabetes, and chronic pain. The four-day June training prepares leaders to present Healthy U/Chronic Disease, and cross-training in the diabetes and chronic pain programs will be offered to interested active leaders at a later date.


Leader training equips you to lead others in this proven method of improving management of their chronic disease symptoms. Co-leaders guide the participation of others by using clearly prepared presentation materials—all of which are provided.


In this supportive, small group environment, individuals who attend Healthy U are empowered to view how their own decisions can have a positive impact on their health. With the guidance of leaders, participants are given the tools to problem solve and make decisions that will enhance health and well-being.


Healthy U was developed at Stanford University and is brought to you in Ohio by the Ohio Department of Aging and the Area Agencies on Aging.
