Your Way to Wellness

Your Way to Wellness is a free chronic disease self management program that helps people with chronic conditions (and their caregivers) overcome daily challenges, take action and live a healthy life.  Groups meet weekly for two and half hours for six weeks and are led by trained volunteers, most of whom have chronic conditions themselves. Family and friends are welcome to attend as well.

We also help children with complex or chronic pain, which is pain that continues even after an injury has healed or when there is no obvious disease.
