There are still a few seats available at the June Healthy U leader training, but the May 18 application deadline is fast approaching. Please review the information below and consider applying if you are interested in learning how to present these evidence-based workshops in your community.
There are three types of Healthy U workshops offered — chronic disease, diabetes, and chronic pain — and we need leaders in all nine counties of our region. The four-day June training prepares leaders to present Healthy U/Chronic Disease, and two-day cross-training in the diabetes and chronic pain 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 wellbeing.
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.
