Upcoming Healthy Living Workshops

Healthy Living workshops are free and open to people with one or more chronic health conditions as well as their caregivers and loved ones. Six-week workshop series are offered in your community and lead by a team of two trained volunteers.

Workshops you can access at HOME on your computer OR your phone!

Even though we are unable to gather this summer in groups, we are continuing to provide support and education for people with long-term health conditions. LifePath is offering new, approved delivery models of our self-management education programs during the time of social distancing. Our Healthy Living workshops provide information and practical skills that build self-confidence and help participants assume an active role in managing one or more chronic conditions. Caregivers and loved ones are welcome to attend. All workshops are still FREE!
