Our evidence-based programs have been researched and proven to result in positive health outcomes for participants. Healthy Living workshops are free to all community members, including family members and caregivers.

New! Healthy Living Alumni Group

The Healthy Living Alumni group is for anyone who has completed any of our five workshops. It is held on the first Thursday of the month, from 2-3:45 at the Greenfield Senior Center, on an ongoing basis.

We gather to continue the work we started in workshops, connecting with others who are managing chronic conditions, learning strategies to improve our quality of life, and supporting each other to make small action plans to help reach our goals and move our lives forward in positive directions. We have a different speaker each month who offers a more in-depth look into the strategies we studied and inspires us to integrate lessons learned into our action plans. Registration is not needed.

Volunteer workshop leaders are always needed!
